Peru – Congregation of Sisters of Bon Secours

Where We Serve


Welcome to Peru

  • Founded 1966
  • Headquartered in Trujillo
  • Area leader: Sister Rosa Elena Gomez Navarro

Welcome to the Sisters of Bon Secours in Peru. Our Sisters of Bon Secours in Ireland, inspired by the call of Pope Paul VI and guided by the Holy Spirit, embarked on a new mission in Latin America in 1966. We invite you to learn more about our outreach and mission.


After arriving in Peru, the sisters began their apostolate by dedicating themselves to the care of mothers and children. They provided health care, social work, religious instruction, and support to the poorest of the poor, especially the sick and dying.

This labor of love as well as availability, courage, solidarity, reconciliation, justice, service, compassion, respect, joy, charity, simplicity and all the values nurtured by our sisters soon attracted the hearts of young women who also wished to consecrate themselves to God, devoting their lives to the service of the needy.

The sisters in Peru began to grow in numbers and expanded the ministry into new communities, which operate in different locations in the country.

Ministry Today
