Washington Area Steering Committee
Town Hall Meeting Invitation
In early February, the pastors of the parishes in the Washington area announced that they had
formed a Steering Committee made up of parishioners from each of the parishes. The pastors
charged this committee with studying past and present realities and with developing
recommendations as to how we, as Catholics in and around the Washington area, might
continue to provide for the evangelization and formational needs of our parish families and,
thus, remain true to our collective mission of proclaiming the Gospel message of Jesus Christ
to all parishioners.
Over the past several weeks, this committee has been diligently gathering and studying facts
and information about our parishes and schools, analyzing trends within the Washington area
and researching recent collaborative efforts among parishes and schools throughout the
Archdiocese of St. Louis. Eventually, the committee will begin exploring options for possible
collaboration among our parishes and schools.
The pastors have further requested that the Steering Committee keep the parish and school
communities informed of its progress and to reach out to parishioners, parents and teachers
for advice and direction. The Steering Committee is now prepared to share the information and
research they have gathered to date and to seek input from the members of our parish and
To do this, the Steering Committee has scheduled several Town Hall Meetings at a number of
our Washington area parishes. Below you will find the dates, times and locations of these
meetings. The Steering Committee is inviting and encouraging parishioners, parents and
teachers to attend any of these sessions.
Monday, April 30 @ 7pm- St. Ignatius (Concord Hill) & St John (Gildehaus)
Tuesday, May 1 @ 7pm- Our Lady of Lourdes (Washington)
Wednesday, May 2 @ 7pm- St Gertrude (Washington)
Thursday, May 3 @ 7pm- St Francis Borgia (Washington) & St Vincent (Dutzow)
As these are general meetings, you can attend any if you cannot make the St. Vincent meeting.
The only meeting that will be different will be the St. Gertrude meeting, as they are doing some
financial reporting much like we did in our town halls way back when. I would suggest attending
the SV meeting if you can, as we could look at site-specific data. Reminder: This committee is
NOT about closing any school.
The Cemetery Committee of St. Vincent has set up long-standing rules and regulations to
insure our cemetery is kept in an orderly fashion. They also help the lawn care we have
contracted to be able to do their job in a proper way for the safety of their equipment and
The Committee would like to remind all of the following rules and regulations:
#16- All memorials, flower containers, decorations, and other things that are placed on the
burial space are at lot holders risk with no liability to the cemetery. The lot holder is responsible
that all memorials be properly installed and maintained.
#22- Votive lights, potted plants, balloons and unsightly grave decorations are not appropriate in
#28- Enclosure of lots, coping of concrete, and all fences and chains are not permitted.
Added note from Fr. Gene: Please be aware that we maintain the cemetery grounds forever at
no additional cost to those who own lots. It’s become increasingly difficult for the lawn
maintenance people to do their job on some lots. Everyone should have a copy of the cemetery
rules and regulations. Should you need a copy, please contact the parish office. Thank you!
