Sacred Heart Canossian Convent, is situated on Mia M. Chotani Road, Mahim West, Mumbai – 16. It came into existence on 1st May 1932 at bay House Cadel Rd at the request of Msgr. Joachim Luiz Archbishop of Bombay to educate the children of Victoria School. As the number of pupils kept on increasing, a plot of land was bought from St. Michael’s Church property at Mia M.

The Convent came under the jurisdiction of St. Michael’s Parish.
