Our parish of St. Bernadette was established by CMM misionaries. It separated from Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in 1999. From that time, many priests have served to our community and it has been growing slowly but surely.
Now we are led by the Divine Word Missionaries and busy developing our parish premisses and our mutual love.
Most of us live in a low-density suburbs of Waterford, Maningdale, Riverside, and Lochview, but there is also a rural-like part of our parish in Hope Fountain area. There are two missionary formation houses in our parish - the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the Missionaries of Mariannhill. A Catholic community of How Mine belongs to our parish as an outstation.
Our Parish Priest is a Divine Word Missionary from India - Fr. Ajit Kumar Kujur SVD.
