The Sisters were based at Mission House, which was located in an old bakery in Little Lonsdale Street. In 1918, Mission House moved to new premises in Spring Street, Melbourne.
The Sisters provided a range of services for 'slum dwellers' in Melbourne, including classes, soup kitchens and mothers' clubs.
The House of Mercy home for 'wayward girls' in Cheltenham later became the Retreat House for the Community of the Holy Name.
