Till late 1968, Mulund was an outpost of the extensive parish of St. John the Baptist, Thane. The Catholic population was sparse and scattered on either side of the Central Railway line. Through the courtesy of the Asbestos Cement Company (ACC), situated about a furlong from the railway station, Masses were celebrated by the priests of Thane at its sports centre, which was referred to as the ACC Chapel. At that time, there were a few Catholic families in the company’s residential quarters.

The place where St. Pius X Church stands now, and the area around it, extending from the railway tracks to Lal Bahadur Shastri (LBS) Marg, was jungle and marshy land, filled with mangroves. In the distance, one could see the outline of the hills, beyond which lies Powai Lake.
