Mission & Vision

The Congregation of Sisters of Bon Secours Mission and Vision

The Congregation of Sisters of Bon Secours are an international Catholic Congregation of women religious. Across the world, we respond to God’s call to promote the wholeness of every person and to see Christ in every person. The Sisters of Bon Secours have a deep belief in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. In this tradition, we find that it is our responsibility to stand up to injustices and defend all of creation.

We believe that peace, safety and love are possible for all through God. By spreading God’s word, we seek to share in that vision.

Through the love of God present in each Sister of Bon Secours, we are impelled:

  • To alleviate human suffering;
  • To help bring others to an awareness of the redemptive meaning of suffering and death;
  • To an awareness of our relationship with God by reproducing in ourselves Christ healing, consoling, teaching and loving – Christ always aware of the needs of others.
    (CBS Constitutions #14)
  • We, Women of Healing, commit ourselves to defend and care for all of creation; to cry out with others against injustice and all that diminishes life on Earth.
    (Mission Focus Statement 2009)


Impelled by the Holy Spirit and renewed by the fire of our original call, we women of audacious hope, nurture each other in our vocation; risk living on the periphery; and as resurrection women respond to what is to come.

(Chapter Statement 2019)
