1. The visiting of the patients in hospital by the nurses has the way of the intercourse with the purpose of relieving of the emotional state of the formers, preparing them for the Sacraments of the Confession and Eucharist, and in case of need writing the notes for public prayer, bringing appropriate sacred literature, answer the questions appeared, buy medicine, call home, etc.

sester_3_The reading of the Acathistus takes place at 5.00 P.M. four times a week. After the reading a nurse spreads saint oil on patients, gives them communion bread, saint water. Also the ecclesiastical discussions are hold and the literature is given (there is a small library at the Chapel). Once a week on Thursdays the priest Piotr (the confessor of the nursery) makes worship. This day the patients confess and receive communion. Those who are seriously ill and the post-operated patients who cant come to the Chapel are confessed and given communion by parson Piotr in their wards. The information concerned ill persons, is prepared by nurses the day before. After the confession and the communion the priest serves water-consecrated public worship for the health of all those who are ill at the clinic (the notes for the public worship the nurses also prepare the day before by visiting the ill people in the wards). At the Chapel or in the wards of those who are seriously ill at their requests parson Piotr makes extreme unction and christening.  Every Thursday at the Chapel (and in the wards) 25-30 persons are confessed and given communion. During the fastings and especially the Lent and Christmas fasting, there are more those who confess up to 50 persons (and there are more than 150 persons in Clinic).During the period from October, 2001, t0 February, 2008, in the Clinic 53 persons were baptized. There are some stable traditions in the Oncologic Clinic: on holidays (the Great Easter and Christmas) nurses come to the Clinic with small gifts, walk over all wards greeting each patient. At the Epiphany parson Piotr together with the senior nurse also greets each patient, sprinkling with Saint Epiphany Water the wards, medical rooms and patients.

     sestry i  klir  

Today there are 18 nurses at the nursery at the age from 35 to 65 and practically all of them have high education. 




Of course, now the nursery has many problems yet, but it has everything that is the most required for its purpose these are people, who dont see another sense of their lives than the service to their neighbours for Jesus love. These people are the best in our society. These people more and more realize their role in life, their destination that is not in a life of idleness, but in a help to the weaker!

sestry i vladyka

The life of every organism is in constant transformation. The nursery is a vivid organism that has absorbed the spiritual and physical attempts of those who help and those whom help to. And these interaction and unity in service give strength for the soul, for its liberation from the ties of senselessness, loneliness, selfishness, hearless, for the liberation of the soul from the ties of sin with the prayers of the Saints.


If You feel Yourself alone, if God has given You understanding of the necessity of helping those who are weaker than You join us! Together well feel easier ourselves!


You may oblige God in any mission if God requires service exactly in this walk of life given for You, and in nowadays when we have an impoverishment of love, deficiency of just Christian relation among the people, a woman like a Jesus preacher with no words but affairs may be demanded in full measure.
