Our international sisters’ community is centered in Germany, where we were founded. The motherhouse is located on Mount Schoenstatt, close to the Original Shrine, in the small town of Vallendar.

From there, our community is divided into various provinces and regions throughout the world, encompassing all continents:


Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, and Belarus


India and the Philippines

North America:

USA, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Mexico

South America:

Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Uruguay


South Africa and Burundi



The specific work we do in keeping with our common mission has particular accents in each country. For a virtual world tour of our community, please visit our international website:
