Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care is part of comprehensive services provided by the institute. Health is not only the absence of disease but is the interplay of socio-political, economic, psycho-spiritual, and cultural well being of persons.

In connection with this, the chaplains, who lead the Pastoral Care, are members of the hospital healing team. Their relationship with the other hospital staff and employees determine the quality of their ministry for the patients and their families. They are skilled in pastoral counseling.  They dedicate their skills and spiritual witness to the better health of the patient and their families, the staff and the medical team.

The Pastoral Care provides Psycho-Spiritual Services to the following:

1. The patients and their companions

· who are facing long term illness or critically ill
· who are lonely, anxious and despairing
· who want to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick

2. The NKTI Community

· for pastoral counseling, supportive friendship & understanding of the religious meaning of sickness and death
