Subsequent to the call by the
President a meeting of the War
dens of the St. Charles Red
Church was held at the church on
the 29th day of March 1917. There
weie present: Messrs Numa Zer
ingue Pres.; PLcide Baudoui and
L. Gassen. Excused on account of
sickness: Jos Schexnaydre. Absent
f. C . Triche
A quorum being present, the
me t<ng was called to order at
»:45 P.M. The Secretary being
absent, the t hair appointed L.
Gassen as Secretary pro tem
The President stated briefly that
he had called the meeting u> de
vice ways and means for the re
opening of Red Church. For this
purpose he had invited the Vicai
General of the Archdiocese, the
Very Reverend F. L. Gassier, to
address the Wardens, and to ex
plain to them the laws and regula
tions of our Holy Church in re
gard to the adminittration of
church property and paiishes
'Father Gass es, acting on behalf
of the Mos Rev. Archbishop, ex
plained at length the meaning of
lée Parochial Charter by which all
the parishes of the archdiocese are
He coriected the
now governed. — __
misuketf impression, which seems of
to prevail amongst a large portion
of the Catholics of St. Charles Par
,sh, that the adoption of the Par
% .
ochial Charter, the church proper-1 t
ty would t*e in danger of being
s old by the Archbishop. He prov
ed our entire satisfaction that such

a corporation would guarantee,
for all times to come, the undis
luibed possession of the church
property by the parishioners. Faih
er Gassier invited the Waruens to
sp«ak freely and to ask any ques
foi s which, to their way rf think
ing, would make it possible to ar.
rive at an early and mutual uuder
Mr. Baudouin, thereupon stated
that he was sa.isfied wuh the ex
planation given in regard to the
meaning a»»d working of the Paro
chial Charter, Knowing, however,
the sentiment ot the people, he
would ask whether the land could
not be sold -nd the proceeds pro
rate amongst the different church
es which, in the course of time,
have been built in the political
Parish of St. Charles? He was
sure that such an arrangement
would be welcomed among the
Catholic cilixeos of the parish
Before replying to *> r. Baudouin
Father Gassier asked the Wardens
to answer the following questions
1. Was the church property bought
by the Wardens?
2. DÄ the Catholic dtixena of the po
litical pariah of St. Charles purchase the
p ro pe rty ?
! 3 . If so, how was the money
1 By legally aaaeaaed taxes, or by volun
tary contributions?
I 4 , Was the church {building and the
former priest's bouft built with the rev
enuis from the land?
Or were they contributed with the
money raised from legally assessed tax
es or voluntary contributions?
The Wardens were of the unanimous
opinion that; neither the Board of Tru
tees nor the Catholic citizens and tax
papers of the political Parish of St. Char
les had bought the property, but that it
had been donated for church purposes;
That the Catholic citizens and taxpay
ers of the political Parish of St. Charles
had never been assessed for taxes in sup
port of the church, but that, since time
immemorial, the revenues were derived
from Pew Rent; from the rent of the
land and from other revenues, such as
are ordinarly found in every Catholic
That, therefore, to the best of their
knowledg, all the improvents were made
with the money derived from the ordin
ary sources of church revenue, with the
possible exception of some minor pur
chases, such as the Stations of the Cross
window shades; statues; etc. etc., which
were collected from the proceeds of din
ners or small entertainments, as is cus
tomary with every congregation
Thereupon Fathar Gassles explained
that neither in conscience nor in law,
could the parishioners [of the other
churches in St. Charles have a claim on
the property of Red Church;
That this property was given, solely
and exclusively, for that particular
chuch and the sustenance of its'priests;
That, for the same reason, the land
could not be sold, but its revenues must
be applied to, and use for, the Red
Church exclusively;
That, in the case only where the
parishioners of another parish, formed
from Red Church, had taxed themselves
for the purchase of the property of the
Mother Parish and for the construction
of its parochial buildings, would the
Mother Parish be obliged to buy out the
other parishes which subsequently were
formed in the same district
The Wardens found this explanation
satisfactory and easy to understand
Father Gassier, then, asked leave to
add a few remarks. He spoke very ear.
nestly on the state of the venerable Red
Church. He said, he could never believe
that the Catholics of St. Charles, who
had their own priest and their own
churches would, knowingly or willingly,
commit an injnttice against their fellow
citizens living in the neighborhoad of
Red Church. These are now deprived of
the sendees which a resident priest
could render them. Now, such an injus
tise would be committed, if they should
insist upon claiming a part of the reveues
----- - ------ „ - ^----
of Red Church, because these revenues
were attached to the Red Church only
and must be used exclusively for the
needs of the Red Church
. In conclusion, Father Gassier called
t ^e attention of the Warden* to the fol
lowing facts:
1. The land belongs to Red ghnrcb; it
cannot be sold
-2. Neither the Archbishop nor the dio
cese will sell that land
3. Catholict, living now in other par
ishes, but possessing tombs in the ceme
tery of Red Church, still are and will re
main, in possession of the title to their
respecuve tombs, whilst those of the
former parishioners of Red Church, that
possesses no tombs, may be interred
jts cemetery subject to the rules and reg
ulations in force throughout the diocese
4. The Public School House, built on
church property, need not be disturbed,
since the title is, and always will be,
held by the corporation of Red Church
3. A new corporation should be form
ed from among the Catholics that now
live within a' reasonable distance
from the Red Church, and on the left
bank of the River. This corporation, ?

though its legitimate Board of Directors
woald then become responsible for the
holding and maintenance of the Jchurch
property and for the subsequent improve
ments tobe made in the course of time.
Some of theae improvements should be
made at the very earliest opportunity. J
•lae the veneraable church will go to ruin J
The Chair then thanked Father Gass
The unair men uum a jr«u.ucr
les for his clear and plain statement of I
facts and pledged the active co-operation ,
of the Wadens in bringing to the speedy
notice of the Catholic citizens of St- C»ht
les Parish the real condition of Ked I
Church and the easy and early solution j
of the difficulty which, the Chair stated,
owes its existence to a general misunder- J
standing ........ I
A motion Waa made by Mr. Baudouin, J
duly seconded, that the President call a |
general meeting of the Catholic* of St,
Charles Pariah at an early date. Carried J
