Since 1824 the Sisters of Bon Secours have brought compassion, healing and liberation to those they serve in a variety of settings: healthcare, education and social services, in hospitals, long-term care, clinics, parishes, in towns, cities and isolated villages.
Bon Secours respond to a universal need: providing care to all who suffer and give them a reason to live and a reason to hope.
The work of the Sisters of Bon Secours not only expanded around France, but also spread overseas. Our first foundation outside of France was in Ireland in 1861, followed in 1870 by an invitation to establish a convent in Britain and in 1881 the Sisters were invited to provide nursing care in Baltimore, USA. Bon Secours Sisters were invited to Chad, Africa in 1957 and Sisters from Ireland established a foundation in Peru in 1966.
