General House

  Our General House has been located in Rome since 1964, next to the Trappist Abbey of  Tre Fontane.  Little Sister Magdeleine wanted it to be in "Rome the heart of the Church and living centre of universality”.



The General Chapter, which is held at Tre Fontane every 6 years with delegates from all the continents, elects the general responsible and her council for a 6 year term. 


The general responsible and her council live at Tre Fontane when they are not travelling to visit the various communities throughout the world and little sisters come from all over to meet with them there. 




 The general secretariat, the general bursary, and the formation team, which are at the service of all the little sisters, are also located in Tre Fontane.
