Glenmary Priests in Southwest Virginia

 The Glenmary Priests and Brothers

In 1945 the Glenmarians, six years old as a Home Mission Society, came to Southwest Virginia, and were entrusted with a parish of some 2,200 square miles of rugged mountains terrain. The priests served our local churches until 2001. The Glenmary still have out reach ministries and continue to do mission work throughout the region. The Glenmary still substitute for our priests when they are needed.  Glenmary Donations
