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.

The Autobiography of Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ: ‘God’s Good for Nothing’ has been produced by the Museum with the generous support of ACU.  
Inquiries: info@maryglowreymuseum.info 

Mary Glowrey's account details her upbringing in Australia and her first years in India as a pioneering medical missionary. As ill health prevented Mary from completing her account, her fellow Australian, Sr Peter Julian Barrett JMJ, completed Mary’s story within a few years of Mary’s death in 1957.
In this publication both documents are accompanied by beautiful photographs from the Mary Glowrey Collection and commentaries that provide cultural and historical background for the texts. 

Makes a great gift!
