The headquarters of the Catholic Women’s League of Victoria and Wagga Wagga is located at Mary Glowrey House, a spacious Victorian home ideally situated at 132-134 Nicholson St. Fitzroy, opposite the beautiful Carlton Gardens. This facility also provides short-term, low-cost accommodation for people from rural and regional areas undergoing medical treatment or visiting relatives in city hospitals.
Our Lady of the Broom is the patroness of all who care for those visiting Mary Glowrey House. It is an Apostolate of kindness, listening and helping with a smile. The depiction of our Blessed Mother with her broom symbolises humble service, one who delights in the ordinariness of daily work and one who is faithful and reliable.
Bookings can be made by contacting our caretaker, John, on (03) 9417 3379.
Note: Bookings for Mary Glowrey House are not accepted via e-mail.
