Pastoral care and counselling

The Church in Vantaa has many pastors who are there to provide care, counselling, and spiritual guidance. No questions concerning life or faith are too small or too big. Feel free to contact the parish in your area for an appointment, phone the pastor on-call, or come to church to meet a pastor e.g. after the Sunday worship service. 

Pastors offer:

  • Discussion
  • Spiritual and emotional support
  • Pastoral care
  • Family and relationship counselling
  • Confession

Pastoral consultation is always strictly confidential. You need not be a church member to receive pastoral care and support.
