Who we are

This information has been compiled by the Catholic Communication Centre from the article by Dr. Fleur D'souza: 'A Future For Our Past' and from the CBCI website.

The Archdiocese of Bombay has been a Metropolitan See since it was elevated by Pope Leo XIII on September 1, 1886, through a Concordat signed by the Holy See and Portugal, and through Pope Leo XIII's Bull, Humanae Salutis. Bombay (as it was then known) now also had its own Archbishop. The ecclesiastical province of Bombay includes the suffragan dioceses of Nashik, Pune, and Vasai.

This website is dedicated to the Priests, Religious and Lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Bombay for their devotion, commitment and service, over the past 125 years, since the erection of the Archdiocese.

This, the official website of the Archdiocese, strives to trace the roots of our Archdiocese and invites you to take a journey into both the past and the future.
