Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry

Program Pillars

grow-spirituallyBon Secours Volunteer Ministry is structured around 5 pillars:

  • Learning through Service with Others
  • Practicing God’s Justice
  • Developing Community
  • Growing Spiritually
  • Living Simply

Volunteers’ service, life and reflection is structured around these 5 program pillars. Every week, volunteers will have a chance to reflect on and engage with at least one of the program pillars through formation and reflection times. At Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry, we understand these pillars to be the foundation on which volunteers experience their year of service, and will hopefully inform their lives after completing the program as well.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
