Short History: The people of Bachni are mainly from a village named Bhadne which belonged to Gauthan parish. Since their village was acquired by the government to make way for a dam they were resettled at the present site, at Bachni. They were also provided land to build a place of worship and so the present Church was built under the guidance of the then Bishop of Pune. For the past three years Jesuit priests from Kolhapur were looking after the spiritual needs of the people. Recently, in June 2006 the Franciscan Fathers have been appointed to take care of the parish. Since 2008, diocesan priests have been appointed to look after the parish.
