Welcome to the Sisters of Bon Secours USA website!
Our revised pages can connect you to the ministries of our sisters here in the United States as well as around the world. Sisters of Bon Secours arrived in the US in 1881 at the invitation of Cardinal Gibbons. Since that time, we have been called to a variety of cities around the country and to a variety of ministries all with a focus of being “Good Help to Those in Need.” Throughout the years our ministry has been faithfully connected with the healing ministry of Jesus and to the intent to help bring people to wholeness.
On our archives pages you’ll find more about our rich history. We also invite you to browse the pages highlighting our volunteer ministry and our associates. Find out how you can join us as a sister, as an associate or in prayer. Join us as we “commit ourselves to defend and care for all of creation; and to cry out with others against injustice and all that diminishes life on Earth.” Again, welcome, we hope you will visit this site often.
