The article deals with relationship of religiosity and psycho-social phenomena (powerlessness, normlessness, social isolation, self-estrangement and cultural estrangement) which are inhibiting factor in relation to quality of life of individuals. Theoretically this article (besides general theory of subjective quality of life) is supported by Melvinem Seeman´s concept of alienation. Personal religiosity is not measured here by individual indicator only but by plurality of indicators. In regressions socio-demographic variables are more important in explaining variability indicators of psycho social phenomena but religiosity is interesting contribution in overall explanation. Among religiosity indicators frequency of church attendance has the strongest predictive ability.
