News & Events
St. Eugene's parking lot was the scene of our latest parish activity on Friday night. About 50 parents and kids gathered for a showing of the Disney Movie "Frozen". The Knights of Columbus provided hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, popcorn and enough soda to keep everyone happy. The movie was free and everyone had a great time. The event was so successful, that a new movie night is already being planned.
20 Week Club drawings began on Sunday, June 1st! Each week for 2o weeks there will be a drawing for a $30 prize. Members who are paid up to date are eligible for prizes. At the end of 20 weeks there is a dinner/dance with 6 grand prize drawings of $50, $50, $100, $100, $200 and a grand prize of $1,000.00. The annual dinner/dance is held at the Village Haven Restaurant in Slatersville and features an all-you-can-eat family style chicken, pasta and french fry dinner with entertainment by Back Beat Sounds. There are raffles and drawings for prizes through out the evening. Sign up sheets are available at the front and back entrances to the church or you can call the rectory. Tickets are $60 each and can be paid $3 weekly or all at once if you want. This activity provides a great opportunity to meet and socialize with other parishioners as well as enjoy a fun night out and maybe even win that $1,000.00 grand prize.
