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 museum is open from February to December. 
Opening hours:
