According to your wish or need, we will be with you:
  • talk
  • keep quiet
  • to listen to you
  • to rejoice in your recovery or to grieve with you
  • and we will provide or mediate a Christian service (bible, prayer, sacraments)

Don't be alone in your worries, fears or pain. Chaplaincy in hospitals is a helping profession for everyone. It complements the entire nursing team in supporting human dignity and restoring life forces in health and illness.

Extraordinary sacramental emergency for the territory of Prague

If you need to urgently ensure the administration of the sacraments in Prague after being transported to a hospital - especially the sacrament of the anointing of the sick (often combined with the sacrament of reconciliation and the Eucharist - viaticum), call the number +420 731 144 144. Here you will be contacted by the Hospital Service of the Archbishopric of Prague, which 24 hours a day daily coordinates priests' visits to hospitals. It is important to know exactly where the sick person is hospitalized (department, floor, possibly even room number), or to determine the exact place where you will wait for the priest, or whether you can come to pick him up by car (this is especially convenient at night). This service is intended exclusively for urgent needs.
