Welcome to the website for Saint Eugene Church!
“Saint Eugene Church is a Roman Catholic community of faith. As such, we believe in Jesus Christ, strive to follow Him under the authority and guidance of His Church’s (the Catholic Church’s) Magisterium, and gather together as a community primarily to engage in the sacred worship of God through the liturgy, most especially the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass-the sacrament of the Eucharist, which is the source and summit of our faith.
Our parish community welcomes God’s people from every walk of life and is committed to doing its part to fulfill Christ’s great commission to “Go and preach the Gospel to all nations and to every people”. Recognizing Christ’s presence and suffering in the poor and less fortunate, we are also committed to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Insofar as we are able, we seek to assist the spiritual, physical, and temporal needs of those around us. Relying on God’s grace and mercy, we attain spiritual growth and bear witness to the truth about God and Jesus Christ to our society and our world”.

Anointing of the Sick
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is intended for anyone suffering an from an ailment which places the afflicted person in at least remote danger of death and it is granted upon request. If you, one of your loved ones, or someone you know would like to receive this sacrament, please have someone contact Fr. Dandeneau at the St. Eugene Church Parish Office as soon as possible. For an emergency, please do not hesitate to contact Fr. Dandeneau regardless of day or time.
Students who wish to prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation must pass an entrance exam demonstrating they have a working basic knowledge of the Catholic faith. They also must attend 10 1-hour class sessions set up with Fr. Dandeneau, commit to a service-project or type of service for the academic year, complete a retreat or the equivalent of a retreat, and submit the required forms/paperwork on time.
The time, date, and location for Confirmation changes each year but it is ordinarily celebrated in the Spring.

Mass Intention Book Open
In addition to bringing their children to religion classes, parents are encouraged to attend Sunday Mass with their children; for the faith to be experienced it must be enlivened spiritually with the grace of the Sacraments, especially the sharing of God’s Word and His Body and Blood, gifts given to us at each and every Mass. It is the house, that is, the life, built on the solid rock of faith rather than the shifting sands of ease and comfort that sustains in time of trial and difficulty; that trials and difficulties come is without question—that we can be sustained in the face of these depends on how well we have built, have practiced, have nurtured our faith, particularly with the living Body and Blood of Christ, the Eucharist, each and every Sunday. Faith is living and dynamic: if not fed, it grows weak; if not practiced, it grows rusty; if not shared, it grows cold; if not lived, it dies.
