Good Shepherd Convent Andheri, Mumbai

The Archbishop of Bombay Cardinal Valerian Gracious met our Provincial Superior Sr. Francis Xavier and invited the Sisters of the Good Shepherd to open a house in his Archdiocese. In 1964 the sisters started their work in Chembur. Srs. Visitation, Gerard and Theresa Grimes were the pioneers of this mission. On 8th December 1965 Mother Rose was installed as Superior. Since we needed a larger area of land to have a convent, school and hostel we decided to purchase a plot of land in Andheri West and in 1968 they shifted to Four Bungalows in Andheri and started a school and a hostel for low income working girls. In 1971 the school was closed down since there was another school in the same locality. In 1985 the parish church was built on the land given by us and was named Good Shepherd Church.
