Institute of Bon Secours (Troyes)

Founded by Father Paul Jean Sebastien Millet at Arcis-sur-Aube, France, 1840, to nurse the sick in their own homes regardless of creed or financial position. The poor are treated gratuitously; those who are able to pay do so. The order has approximately 120 houses, in France, Belgium, England, Italy, Spain, and Africa. The mother-house is in Troyes.
