Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry

Goal of Program

Live Compassionately. Receive and Offer Healing. Share in Liberation. Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry provides young adults with the opportunity to live the charism of the Sisters of Bon Secours and to receive this charism from those they serve. We offer volunteers the unique opportunity to serve within the Bon Secours Health System in the fields of public and clinical health, social service, and education. Volunteers commit to grow spiritually by learning through their service, developing community, living simply, and practicing God's Justice.
