Situated at 132-134 Nicholson Street Mary Glowrey House is the administrative Headquarters of the Catholic Women’s League of Victoria and Wagga Wagga Inc. A Committee administers the financial and general management, e.g., maintenance. A resident Manager, with the assistance of volunteers, daily manages the house – bookings, etc.

Phone Bookings for accommodation are essential.

Now it is open to all members. We pray for the intentions of League members and for current issues.
