The General Mother House is located in the city of Sittard, Holland. Here is where the Mother General resides. At the Mother House, there are Sisters from several countries, such as, Holland, Germany, Croatia and South America. The General Mother House serves as the highest authority after the Holy Father and the Sacred Congregation for Religious and Secular Institutes in Rome as the principal body that regulates religious life in our Congregation. The sisters run a retreat house at the General Mother House.
Within the chapel of the General Mother House, there is a special chapel built to one side that houses the remains of the Servant of God, Mother Maria Teresa of St. Joseph, whose cause is in Rome in the process for beatification. Many people come to pray at this burial site frequently.
