Student Deaconess

The church wishes to be a part of people's everyday life. Therefore the students and staff at the University Consortium of Pori have their own deaconess they can turn to, when they:
  • feel they can no longer cope with their studies, work, or life in general
  • are feeling lonely
  • are experiencing problems in a relationship
  • need someone to talk to
You can contact the Student Deaconess by phone or e-mail. You can also meet her in “Porin seurakuntakeskus” (Eteläpuisto 10 A, 1. floor).
