The Convent was opened at the request of the Parish Priest, with the consent of the Bishop of Poona. On 6th June,1960, 4 sisters arrived in Dhule and stayed in a rented house. The sisters are actively involved in the education of boys and girls, socio-pastoral apostolate conducting youth group, Sunday school, attending the parish council visiting families and hospitals. In 1968, a new Convent and School was built. In 1979 there was a bifurcation of the School. The K.G. and Primary Sections were shifted to St. Xavier’s grounds after a complete renovation of the campus had been done, with an independent community resident there. The High School remained in Chalisgaon Road with a community of its own. The alumni are proud to state that they studied in Canossa High School and go out of their way to help the Sisters in their need.
