For people in hospitals

When you are in hospital yourself or when your family member is sick, you can reach one of our four special chaplains working in the hospitals and elderly care homes of Vantaa. You can contact them whenever you need someone who will listen to you or when you need support in your new circumstances.

We can

  • give you a possibility to talk about all your worries
  • pray with you if you wish
  • give you or your relative the sacrament of Eucharist
  • organize a moment of prayer when your family member has passed away

We work as representatives of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland in hospitals.

You can find us easily by asking the hospital staff. You can also contact us directly.
