Associates of the Sisters of Bon Secours

Locations

Local Associate Groups

Most communities gather once a month for prayer, friendship, faith sharing, and even social time in a community context. Some groups meet at the same place each month, while other communities rotate the location. Many Associates and Sisters are involved with the planning for the gatherings such as the themes, prayer services, and faith sharing ideas. Each local community decides on a day, time, and location for its group. Currently there are Bon Secours Associate groups in Baltimore, Maryland; St. Petersburg, Florida; Grosse Pointe, Michigan; Darby, Pennsylvania; Charleston, South Carolina; Greenville, South Carolina; Hampton Roads and Richmond, Virginia.

We also have individual Associates who live in Michigan, Wisconsin and Massachusetts.

Associates At Large

The Bon Secours Associates hold an annual weekend retreat in Marriottsville, Maryland. All are welcomed and encouraged to come. Sisters and Associates from our local communities are represented for this weekend of spiritual enlightenment/ development, prayer, activities, and socials. The themes and presenters are varied. This is also a great time to connect with Sisters and Associates from the various local communities, make new friends, visit old friends, and realize the Bon Secours Associates as a whole. Some local groups also offer a day of reflection during the year.

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.
