Parish History

St. Katherine Drexel Parish was established on January 8, 2017.  The new parish was the result of a planning process that began in 2015 involving five Washington County parishes.  The study looked at the financial problems at the parishes and a better deployment of clergy.  The result of the planning process was the recommendation to merge the parishes of St. Agnes, Richeyville; Ave Maria, Bentleyville; St. Joseph, Roscoe; St. Oliver Plunkett, Fredericktown; and St. Thomas Aquinas, California.  After the merger took place, all six churches from the five closed parishes remained open.  Ave Maria Church became the parish church with the other churches used for occasional worship.
