Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ was declared a Servant of God by the Most Rev. Dr. Gali Bali, Bishop of Guntur, India, on 27th March 2013 during the Chrism Mass at the Infant Jesus Cathedral in Phirangipuram.

Being declared a ‘Servant of God’ is the first of four official approvals on the path to sainthood, and signals the commencement of the Diocesan Phase of the Inquiry. The Society of Jesus Mary and Joseph (JMJ) are the petitioners for the cause of Dr Sr Mary Glowrey.

For any cause to have a remote possibility of success, three prerequisites are essential, namely:

  1. There is a widespread reputation of holiness of the person considered.
  2. The person has lived a heroically virtuous life.
  3. There is evidence of intercessory power, favours and/or miracles attributed to the person's intercession.

The Most Rev. Dr. Gali Bali, Bishop of Guntur, has issued an edict inviting all the faithful to bring to his attention any useful information regarding the cause of Dr Sr Mary Glowrey.  The League has established a Register to record the accounts of those persons who genuinely believe, or maintain that they are certain, that they received spiritual favours through Mary Glowrey's intercession. The Society of JMJ has established a similar Register in India.

If you genuinely believe that you have received a spiritual favour through Mary Glowrey's intercession, please tell us about it. Letters should be sent to the:
