Medical doctor and religious sister, Victorian-born Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ (1887-1957) was declared a Servant of God in India in 2013, starting of the diocesan phase of the process which eventually may result in her beatification and canonisation.
Having answered God's call by going to Guntur, India, in 1920, she became a religious Sister and spent the rest of her life serving the medical and spiritual needs of the most marginalised people.
It was there she became known as Sr Mary of the Sacred Heart JMJ.
The campaign for Sr Mary Glowrey to become Australia’s second saint has reached the second phase of an eventual four.
Fr Cherian Thunduparampil CMI has been appointed as postulator for the cause and is in Melbourne to collect the documents needed for Dr Sr Mary Glowrey's journey towards Sainthood.
Shane Healy spoke to Fr Cherian this week at the Mary Glowrey museum about his work.The Museum
features Sr Mary’s story and legacy, illustrated by selections from her extensive correspondence with family and friends in Australia.
