“As Sisters of Bon Secours the struggle for a more humane world is not an option; it is an integral part of spreading the gospel and involvement in social justice issues is an important part of who we are as Sisters of Bon Secours.” – CBS Constitutions
Our Mission Focus calls us to “commit ourselves to defend and care for all of creation; to cry out with others against injustice and all that diminishes life on Earth.”
The Congregation Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Committee serves as a primary resource to the Congregation Team and all members of the Congregation. Through our education and advocacy efforts we aim to assist the Congregation in prioritizing and addressing Global and local country issues with the ultimate goal of achieving systemic change.
The Committee assists in developing follow-up plans to address peace and justice issues/ concerns promulgated by the General Chapter.
Justice and peace work is not just one of many things we do as women religious; it’s how we live our consecrated life.
