mission is to reveal God’s healing love to all
We do that by trying to alleviate human suffering
while acknowledging its redemptive value. We respect the wholeness
of each individual, especially the more needy, seeing Christ
in those we serve, and seek to demonstrate His compassion
through the warmth and hospitality, simplicity and courage
we try to bring to our work.
Bon Secours sisters see ‘healing’ as a way of
helping individuals become ‘whole’ physically,
spiritually, psychologically, socially, materially and intellectually.
just as Josephine Potel and her young friends responded to
the needs of a chaotic, post-Revolutionary Paris, we constantly
look for new ways to serve the changing needs of the poor
and suffering in the twenty-first century.
We are women of prayer, hope and commitment to
the poor and the suffering. We serve with enthusiasm and
passion. Every aspect of our work is characterized by a desire
to heal, to liberate and to be compassionate. By our solidarity
with the poor and the needy, we demonstrate our understanding
of our God. Bon Secours sisters live the Gospel, sometimes
in places and among people bereft of belief and of hope.
We seek, in our life and work, to bear witness
to the compassion of Christ: bringing love, justice and peace,
hope and joy to everyone we meet.
