LIFE IN COMMUNITY; COMMUNITY IN LIFE

Where two or three are gathered together in my name I am in their midst.”  Matthew 18:20

Life in community is indispensable to all recognized religious.  Sisters are called by God to share the same mission and are sent by the Congregation, live together under the same authority, pray together, share the same family life and seek to witness to the love of Christ.

The Vocation of a Sister of Bon Secours is a call to the perfection of Christian love lived in an ecclesial community.  Responding to this call the sisters live in God and bring to the interior of their community as well as to those whom they serve, the resolute witness of their fidelity to Christ. “By this love that you have for one another, every one will know that you are my disciples…” (John 13:35)

By our community living, we bear witness to the reality of the eternal life to which God in His love calls all to share in the Trinity. “That all may be one as you, Father, in me and I in you that they may be one in us.” (John 17:22)
