The Bon Secours Convent is located next to St. Dunstan's Church. Sister Winifred is the Parish Sister and she is an essential and valuable part of the local parish. Sister Winifred visits the sick and housebound, as well as helping in various administrative roles. The Sisters of Bon Secours were founded in Paris in 1824, amidst the devastation following the French Revolution. The Sisters proposed nursing the sick in their homes, serving wherever a need was present. Today, with the Congregation’s headquarters in Paris, the Sisters of Bon Secours’ health care ministry has grown to include the countries of France, Ireland, England, Scotland, the United States, and Peru.
Since 1824, Bon Secours has brought the message of compassionate healing, hope and reconciliation. From health care to education to housing, hospital and clinic to parish, urban to rural, Bon Secours responds to a universal need: To provide to all who suffer a reason to live and a reason to hope.
