Who can become a Sister of Bon Secours?
You may think, “I’m not good enough or holy enough.” Relax!
Many feel that way when first thinking about religious life.
God calls all kinds of people. Characteristics that fit a person
considering religious life are:
Love of God and others
Interest and ability in being of service within the Catholic
- Desire for prayer and sharing faith
- Concern for people who
are poor, suffering, vulnerable, or dying
- Generosity of
heart and wholesome attitude
- Openness to the Spirit and
willingness to grow
- Ability to relate well with others
- Catholic women generally
between ages 18 – 40 and
free of marriage bonds
- Good physical and emotional
What is a vocation?
We all have a vocation in life whether it is to marry, stay
single, become a vowed religious or priest. And, each are
called, very personally. We are also called to holiness and
to be of service to others. Our first vocation is to be our
truest selves and to be happy. As we grow in faith, we come
to understand our call in life, usually by God nudging us.
My vocation in life may be different from my friend’s.
