Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry


By extending the healing ministry of Christ to those in need, Bon Secours Volunteers deepen their relationships with God, with self, and with others. This striving to build relationships in the Way of Christ lies at the heart of a Bon Secours Ministry Volunteer’s commitment to full-time service.

Yet, life as a Bon Secours Volunteer is about much more than serving others for a year. Bon Secours Volunteers commit to learn through their service with others. The following reflections demonstrate how much of this learning occurs when our volunteers recognize Christ in the people they serve. Thus, throughout a year of full-time service, Bon Secours volunteers are able to more deeply explore the reciprocal or mutual nature of relationships built through service with others. Exploring the dynamic of how sharing Christ’s healing ministry with others leads one to receive Christ’s healing ministry from others enables our volunteers to grow more closely to God, to self, and, of course, to others.

We are called by God and sent by the Church to reproduce in ourselves:
Christ healing... Christ consoling... Christ always aware of the needs of others.
