Associate Vision Statement

We, the Bon Secours Associates, are a faith-based community dedicated to sharing and extending the mission of the Sisters of Bon Secours.

  • We embrace the mission of the Sisters of Bon Secours, especially those expressing the charism of compassion, liberation and healing, by modeling and sharing the Sisters’ charism in our daily lives.
  • We commit to share God’s love as an extension of the Sisters by being Good Help to those in need.
  • We witness evangelical charity to bring the mystery of redemptive love to the under-represented members of society.
  • We share God’s love with the sick, the dying, the economically poor, our colleagues and families, and with one another, in order to radically further the reign of God on earth.

Together with the Sisters of Bon Secours, we commit to the mission focus:

“to defend and care for all creation; to cry out with others against injustice and all that diminishes life on Earth.”

We will accomplish this in an ongoing way through personal prayer, becoming more informed about ecological issues, and demonstrating in our lifestyles respect and protection for human beings and all creation.

Gratitude for the privilege of living out the charism of Bon Secours is expressed in our prayers for the Sisters and Associates of Bon Secours, for new vocations to the congregation, and for those we serve.
