Who We Are
Since 1824 the Sisters of Bon Secours have brought compassion, healing and liberation to those we serve. We are an international religious organization whose mission is to alleviate human suffering by caring for those who are sick and dying, to promote the wholeness of every person, especially the poor and vulnerable, and to see Christ in every person. We commit ourselves to defend and care for all of creation.
What We Do
Today, we practice our healing and spiritual ministry in hospitals, hospices, clinics, parishes, long-term care facilities, and home care to name a few. We are caregivers, spiritual directors, chaplains, administrators, community organizers, board members, advocates and more.
Where We Are
Our ministries serve the needs in many communities within France, Great Britain, Ireland, Peru, Africa and the United States of America. Whether in health care, education or social services, in hospitals or parishes, in towns and cities or isolated villages, the Sisters of Bon Secours respond to a universal need: To provide to all who suffer a reason to live and a reason to hope.
Welcome to the Congregation of Sisters of Bon Secours website. We have a new look and new content. We are proud to share with you about our lives and our ministries – where we have been and our rich history, where we are today, and where we are going tomorrow.
Since 1824, we have dedicated ourselves to providing Good Help to Those in Need® in many international communities including France, Ireland, Great Britain, United States, Peru and South Africa. We believe that the call of the Gospel is to proclaim and participate in accomplishing God’s hope for the world marked by healing, compassion and liberation. In continuing the healing mission of Jesus, and in our long tradition, we believe that the struggle for a more humane world is not an option; it is an integral part of spreading the Gospel and involvement in social justice issues is an important part of who we are as Sisters of Bon Secours. Building on our past, we continue to be responsive to the needs of today’s world.
Our Mission Focus states; We, Women of Healing, commit ourselves to defend and care for all creation; to cry out with others against injustice and all that diminishes life on Earth.
I invite you to browse our site and learn about how we live out our charism of compassion, healing and liberation everyday through our different ministries. I also invite you to contact us should you wish to know more about our Congregation or our ministries.
