Mary Glowrey Museum

Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ (1887-1957) was a Victorian born and educated doctor. In January 1920 she went to Guntur, India, where she became a religious Sister. She was known as Sr Mary of the Sacred Heart JMJ. She spent the rest of her life serving the medical and spiritual needs of the most marginalised people. The Catholic Church declared Mary Glowrey a Servant of God in 2013.

This year marks a century since Mary Glowrey began her medical missionary work in India.

The year 2020 has been an extraordinary one for all.

Current restrictions in Melbourne (August/September 2020) mean the Mary Glowrey Museum is temporarily unable to accept bookings for this period.

Staff and group leaders considering future bookings are encouraged to contact us to discuss the opportunities for students, staff and other groups that we offer to explore the inspiring story of Mary Glowrey, 'Australia's gift to India'.
These include Twilight Professional Development for teachers.

Museum staff can collaborate with school leaders to enable student learning and meet staff professional needs. See contact details, above.

Details of booking resumption, and any public health limitations that may be in place, will be posted on this site and our Facebook page.
