As prophetic women totally committed to do justice in radical solidarity with the poor, the suffering and those most in need, we proclaim the Gospel where it is not.
Our witness to God’s presence is marked by a passionate spirit and enthusiasm for the kingdom.
Since the first twelve Sisters of Bon Secours joined together more than 180 years ago, we have devoted ourselves to caring for people’s physical and spiritual needs, especially those who are poor and those who are dying.
While that remains the core of our vision and mission, we believe our charism is a living spirit that evolves as people’s needs change. In fact, we believe change in how and where we work to bring people to wholeness is essential to the success of our mission.
Over the years, we have broadened our scope and reach from providing care in the homes of the sick and dying, to working in community hospitals.
As the delivery of health care rapidly changed, we changed as well, developing health systems dedicated to providing a complete spectrum of care informed by our faith. We sought to bring care to the poor and isolated with clinics for migrant workers, mobile care vans, and programs designed to help older people get the services they need to stay healthy, cared for, and connected to the larger community.
In addition, we looked beyond health care and found new avenues to help people grow and achieve wholeness through the retreats, programs, and workshops we and our lay partners offer at our Spiritual Center. Where we saw women and children in poverty or living in fear and violence, we worked to bring the resources, support, and guidance they need to build a new and better life.
In the past, the work of the Sisters of Bon Secours was primarily carried out by religious sisters. Now, we work to expand our family to include lay volunteers and associates, co-workers, and people from other religious and community organizations who are working towards the goals and values we share.
We are committed to continuing to seek new paths to help bring all people to physical, mental, and spiritual wholeness. We are creative, flexible, passionate women whose lives center on healing and providing compassionate care for all those in need and we invite you to join us.
