Sisters of Bon Secours Bicentennial Issue of Focus Magazine Celebrates 200th Anniversary

We are happy to share this bicentennial issue of Focus Magazine, filled with Bon Secours Sisters from around the world, as we look back on 200 years!

Founded in Paris, France in 1824, the original sisters were twelve women who came together to nurse the sick and dying in their homes. The Archbishop in France at the time called them “Bon Secours,” meaning “Good Help” in English. At the time of their founding, it was a mere 35 years after the French Revolution ended. It was unheard of for sisters to leave the convent, and go out into the communities to nurse people and their families back to health. Today, the Congregation is thriving in four continents, carrying out the healing ministry of Jesus and living out the gospel message.
