Help, support and guidance


Whatever problems you may be experiencing, we are here to support you. Sometimes just talking with someone may help. All meetings with our priests, deacons and other staff are strictly confidential.

We respect each person's religious convictions and worldview on the basis of the freedom of belief. You do not need to be a member of the Church to have an appointment with one of our church staff. 

You are not alone! Come and tell us about your troubles. You can contact our immigrant worker Jessica with any kind of problems. Jessica is a church deacon. 

Our priests, Timo and Janne, offer spiritual and other support such as

  • counselling
  • spiritual and emotional support
  • family and relationships counselling and
  • confession

You can also contact any other priest in our parishes. 

Our deacons mostly offer socio-economic support such as

  • financial advice and material assistance
  • emotional support
  • conversational aid

You can find and contac a deacon in you own area. Link to Finnish deacons' contact info. Link to Swedish deacons' contact info.
 

Note: We have priest working in hospitals, certain workplaces, prisons, and schools. If you do not know how to contact one, you can ask your nurse, social worker, teacher, or a police officer to help you find one.
