THE MONASTERY

Kalangan Road Galong NSW

A Mission of the Redemptorists

Library

St Alphonsus, the Founder of the Redemptorist Congregation, was the author of over 110 books. His sons have continued his love of spreading God’s Word and Love through the printed word.


The Galong Monastery library was famous in the district for the number and variety of its collection. Sadly, when the Monastery school closed, many of the older books in the collection were given to the National Library and many others sold. In recent times the remainder of the former Monastery Library have been added to by the donations of volumes by donors interested in expanding the Irish, Irish-Australian and Australiana sections of the collection.
