Spiritual and Religious Assistance Service
The reason why the service exists
Health is not just the physical, mental and social wellbeing. The spiritual dimension must be included. Spirituality is part of the human life, regardless of which faith or religious practice one has. The spiritual aspect is not necessarily religious or confessional, which means that also atheists and agnostics may require spiritual monitoring, according to their ideals.
This Service contributes to the concept of full health and, as such, is part of the organic structure of the hospital institution.
The patient, its family members and the professionals of the Institute are the reason why this Service exists.
We will visit you, listen to you, receive you, and celebrate faith with you.
Daily, at any hour of the day, according to the possibility of the Assistants and their schedules.
The weekly rest day of the Catholic Assistant is Monday.
