Welcome to the website for the Congregation of the Sisters of Bon Secours.
The Congregation of Bon Secours, founded in 1824, continues a nearly 200- year history of being “Good Help to Those in Need” by participating in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. We continue this international ministry through our presence in France, Ireland, Great Britain, Peru and the United States. And, we recently began a community in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We believe that our mission of compassion, healing and liberation is needed as much in our world today as it has ever been. You will see evidence of this as you visit the pages on our history as well as on our International Committees, especially our Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Committee. “Impelled by the Holy Spirit and renewed by the fire of our original call…” we are moving toward the future with renewed energy and hope. We continue to discern our response to current and ongoing realities of both the COVID -19 crisis and the call for racial equity worldwide. Our doors and our hearts are open to receive new members whether Vowed, Associates, Young Adults or Ministry Volunteers – we welcome your questions; your exploration with us; and, certainly, your joining us in prayer as we further our journey of being messengers of the Gospel of Jesus and “Good Help to Those in Need.”
