The counsellors in Pastoral Services are trained in theology and have a clinical pastoral education. Their interventions include welcoming and listening, support and availability, and spiritual accompaniment.
Sacrament of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Sick or Unction of the Sick is intended to aid patients to live their trials through faith. It can be celebrated at the end of life, but always with the view to live well in the time remaining. This sacrament can be celebrated for a patient who desires or accepts to receive it, or, if unconscious, he is presumed to accept it according to his faith.
To access this service
This service is normally available during the day from pastoral service counsellors. An emergency procedure is also available for patients at the end of life.
Who can benefit
Hospitalized patients and their families, caregivers and the personnel.
