Do you need help?

Rejoice with those who rejoice. Weep with those who weep. -Romans 12:15

Diaconal work

One of the basic assignments of the church is social work. Whatever problems you may experience in your life, we will support you in times of sorrow and difficulty. Meetings with diaconal workers and pastors are always strictly confidential and free of chargeChurch membership is not required.

You can discuss with a pastor or a diacon on issues such as relationship troubles, grief, work matters, and any other burdening situation. We provide spiritual, physical and material help to those in need. Each person's religious convictions and philosophy of life are always respected on the basis of freedom of belief.

The pastors and diacons of our Parish offer:

  • Discussion
  • Spiritual and emotional support
  • Family and relationship counseling
  • Place for private confession and absolution

You can also contact our pastors and diacons on questions such as financial advice and material assistance and if you need help dealing with authorities and form filling.
