Silence and emotional support
We provide places for silence and spirituality.
Emotional and spiritual support and encouragement
We provide places for silence and spirituality. Heponiemi, located about 80 kilometres from Helsinki offers a space for silence and spiritual contemplation in accordance with the Christian tradition of retreats.
For 120 years the Deaconess Institute’s church in Helsinki has conveyed the Christian message of the Institute’s work. And today the church provides a place for silence and spirituality.
The pastoral care services are for the institute’s clients, residents, relatives and staff members. Individual conviction is respected and the staff is bound by the obligation of confidentiality.
Since the establishment of the Deaconess Institute, work has included a care service based on Christian love one’s neighbor and respect for human dignity.
