After World War II, many of the barracks buildings in Jefferson Barracks were converted to Veterans Housing to serve the needs of veterans returning from the War and needing a place to hose their families. To serve those families, the parish of St. Bernadette was created in 1947 and on 3 Sep 1947, Fr. Feckter was installed as the first Pastor.
