News & Events
St Eugene Parish held its annual Wine Tasting Dinner at Chester's Restaurant with the generous support of Kevin Kitson of Christy's Liquor. Each of the five courses of the wonderful meal was paired with a wine that complimented the food. Wines included one from our own local winery, Mulberry Vineyards. The evening ran from 4 pm till well after 6 pm and needless to say, everyone had a wonderful time.
St Eugene Church Parish held its annual 20 Week Club Dinner/Dance on October 17th at the Village Haven Restaurant in Slatersville. After an all-you-can-eat Chicken and Pasta dinner, guests enjoyed dancing to music provided by Back Beat Sounds. Basket raffles, a scratch ticket money tree, and a 50/50 drawing added to the excitement that led up to the Grand Prize drawings that totaled over $2,000.00! A good time was had by all!

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 2015 - 2016
As we approach the summer season, it seems impossible that our parish Religious Education Programs must once again register for the year (2015-2016): but time flies by and September plans must be made. It has become our policy to request that each family complete a registration form in July each year. Please find a registration form enclosed and register only the children who will be attending our programs this coming school year(20l5-20|6). It is important to remember that "ALL 2014 - 2015 CONFIRMATION I CANDIDATES" need to RE-REGISTER for the "2015-2016" CONFIRMATION II program!

Box A, Chepachet, RI 02814, no later than August 1, 2015. You may also download a registration form from the Forms and Schedules page of the church web site.
