Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry

Why BSVM

We are small, focused, intentional. We radically love our neighbors and know that our volunteers both extend compassion, healing, and liberation to their neighbors, but also receive

  • Through the Sisters of Bon Secours, we have had a presence in Southwest Baltimore and Richmond for over 150 years. This means there are well-established relationships already formed in the community in which volunteers. This commitment to the Sowebo community is a large reason why we have chosen for our volunteers to live in the same neighborhood where they serve.

 

  • Our focus on healthcare makes us different. We offer our volunteers the opportunity to work directly in the Bon Secours Baltimore Hospital and in affiliated organizations.  In recent years, volunteers interested in healthcare have ministered in Patient Advocacy, in the Emergency, Renal, and Behavioral Health Departments, in Community Nutrition, Diabetes Education, Family Health and Wellness, and on the Inpatient Floors at Bon Secours Baltimore and Richmond hospitals.

 

  • The pillar grow spiritually is the foundation for all of our other pillars.  Our formation interfaces Catholic Social Teaching and prayer with the experiences our volunteers have at their work sites. We structure the year so that the pillar of grow spiritually is deliberately practiced in every day life. One example of this is that our volunteers come together for prayer and reflection twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.

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.
