The Oblates of Mary Immaculate Congregation to expand their mission involvement approached the Archdiocese of Raipur for permission to work in the area. They were asked to look for a place somewhere near Bilaspur area. On 10th June 2009 Rev. Fr. Peter Sakra OMI arrived in Bilaspur in search of a new maiden mission. Initial days he stayed in Sacred Heart Church, Bilaspur. After few days of search he got settled and mission life began in Chakarbhata-Bilha area living in a rented cottage. In 2009 the spiritual activities began with 8 Catholic families and in the year 2012 this mission had 25 catholic families. His Grace Most Rev. Joseph Augustine D.D., the Archbishop of Raipur erected this mission as a new Parish in the Archdiocese of Raipur on 14th October 2012 under the patroness of Immaculate Mary. The Parish feast is celebrated on 8th December. This infant Parish is located in the outskirts of Bilaspur city located near Bilaspur Airport and has 36 catholic families.
