“Remarkable Wonders are Done Through You” Please give generously!

Our parish goal this year is $33,000.00. This year’s theme is: “Live with Faith. Give with Heart. Please help us to reach our goal. Thank you.
"In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night. An angel of the Lord stood over
them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said "Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a savior has been born to you; he is Christ the,Lord. And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger." And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words: Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favors."

Parishioners gathered on December 3rd to celebrate the lighting of the manger and Christmas trees in front of St Eugene Church. The church choir along with members of the parish sang carols while children from our CCD classes acted out a live manger scene. Afterward all gathered in the church hall for hot chocolate, deserts and good company. St Eugene's Council Knights of Columbus sponsored the Keep Christ in Christmas event.
Thank you to all those who adopted families or donated to our Annual Giving Tree. The generous outpouring of gifts and food allowed us to provide Christmas dinner, presents and a little happiness to many, many families this year. Thanks also to those who set up the tree, sorted the gifts and transported them.
You have brightened the Christmas of many!

EASTER FLORAL MEMORIALS
Your gift to our Easter Flower collection was very much appreciated and helped us decorate the church for Easter and the solemn and festive days following and also gives you a chance to remember someone you love. The special shrine near the Baptismal font holds the envelopes with the names of those whom you remembered. The candle burns for the entire Easter Season in their memory.
