Sacred Heart Church, Andheri

Sacred Heart Parish, Andheri East was conceptualized on June 21, 1987 by the Archdiocese of Bombay, and entrusted to the pastoral care of The Society of Divine Word [Societas Verbi Divini (SVD)] Fathers. On May 17, 1998 the foundation stone of Church was laid. The transformation of the exteriors and interiors of the church from a poultry shed to the present structure of elegance was amazing.

The inauguration and blessing of the magnificent Church building built on the foundation stone laid by Fr. Sopena S. J. took place on 8th Sept.2000 with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist by his grace, Archbishop Ivan Dias. On June 6th 2004 a community centre with meeting halls was completed and inaugurated by Fr. Gregory Pinto SVD, Provincial Superior of Mumbai Province.

Today, we have 29 small Christian communities and 34 cells and associations attending to the specific needs of target groups of parishioners or carrying out certain specialized tasks in the service of all the parishioners.
