One of the platforms for realising it is the organisation of Caritas, active world- wide, which operates in Slovakia under the name Caritas Slovakia. The paper examines the way Caritas employees perceive its Christian profile through semi-structured interviews. The research aims to present the variability and  contents of the Christian dimension of Caritas from the point of view of selected respondents. The results show the respondents’ perceptions in the sphere of spiritual care for the clients and of a f exible of er of services according to the neighbours’ present needs.
