The modern Gloria church was constructed in English Gothic style, shaped in the form of a Latin Cross with tall towers. The four turrets, rising to a height of 160 feet, is quite majestic and visible in this suburb of Mumbai. It may hurt your neck if you loop up the steeples that seem to penetrate the sky above. This church, made of graystone is counted as one of beautiful churches with towering spiresin the state of Maharastra. Adjacent to the building functions the Antonio D’Souza High School, managed by missionaries attached to Gloria church. This church is worth a visit to get blessed and to enjoy divine ambiance inside.
