A welcoming community for seniors
Bethany Manor is a community of people aged 55+ living in a loving, Christian environment. Owned and operated by Saskatoon Mennonite Care Services Inc., we are a faith-based organization and spiritual care is one of our priorities.
Residents from any background and faith are welcome at Bethany. Our community is respectful of the beliefs of residents and staff.
The idea for Bethany Manor began in April 1980 when representatives from five Mennonite churches met to explore the housing needs of seniors in Saskatoon. Through discussion, research and surveys, a recommendation was formed to develop a a non-profit housing project to accommodate 150-200 seniors and to form a senior citizens housing and care services board with representation from the churches.
In May 1981, a planning committee was struck, and a motion made to name the board Saskatoon Mennonite Care Services, and the organization became incorporated in December 1981.
In December 1983, the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation approved a 70-suite building, and Bethany Manor was the name chosen by the board from six suggestions.
The first residents moved in January 1986.
Saskatoon Mennonite Care Services Inc. was originally made up of 13 Mennonite churches from Saskatoon and area, 11 of which remain today:
- Aberdeen Mennonite Church
- Cornerstone Church (Mennonite)
- First Mennonite Church
- Langham Mennonite Fellowship
- Mount Royal Mennonite Church
- Nutana Park Mennonite Church
- Osler Mennonite Church
- Pleasant Hill Mennonite Church
- Pleasant Point Mennonite Church
- Warman Mennonite Church
- Wildwood Mennonite Church
We value our dedicated staff who make Bethany Manor such a wonderful place to live!
