Saint Eugene’s Community Spirit Committee Needs YOU!
Provide opportunities to the Parishioners of Saint Eugene to engage as full members of the Parish. Provide help and support to the Parish through participation in activities that promote community.
Host monthly fellowship hour following the 9:00 a.m. Mass. Our primary goal is to welcome new parishioners and provide an opportunity for Parishioners to be together—learning and sharing with one another in friendship—after gathering at the Lord’s Table
Have questions? Please feel free to contact Vinny Parisi (352) 397-5986; firstname.lastname@example.org

The Knights of Columbus Council at Saint Eugene is still sponsoring a program called "A Can-A-Week". The purpose of this program is to collect and distribute non-perishable food items to local area food banks on a regular basis. Cardboard barrels are placed in strategic locations throughout the parish campus and families are asked to donate 1 food item or items regularly.
Thank you for your very generous donations!
The Prayer Blanket Ministry is dedicated to the sick of our parish family through the prayerful construction of blankets, shawls and rosaries. All blankets and shawls are donated and accompanied by a bi-lingual packet of prayers, rosary and religious medals. We also gladly accept donations as each blanket costs between $15 & $20 to make and we make an average of 4 to 6 fleece blankets a month.
To pick up a blanket or shawl, please contact one of our priests or Gail during office hours. Please contact Sue Broderick at 919-365-3479 if you need a blanket, or have any questions about the ministry.
We welcome you to join our Ministry and invite you to our meetings on the third Friday of the month, and the fourth Tuesday of the month at 10am. Please see the bulletin for times/dates as the schedule is subject to change in case of holidays.
Our Community Garden
Our mission is to organically grow fresh produce for the Wendell United Methodist Church food pantry, which is part of the NC Food Bank. Volunteers plant and harvest the produce as well as maintain the garden area and work on special projects to enhance the garden.
Saint Eugene Music Ministry
We are looking for new members to join our choirs that sing at the Saturday 5:00 P.M. Vigil Mass and the Sunday 9:00 A.M. Masses. The only requirement is a desire to sing and praise God through song. Please see Jennifer after any of the weekend Masses. Remember, those who sing, pray twice!

Do you know about the Respect Life Ministry at St. Eugene? Many people assume it is just a group that is opposed to abortion. But it also addresses education, formation and the invitation of the faithful to actively participate in the protection and the sanctity of all human life, from conception until natural death in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church. It is all about LIFE.
If you are interested in any of these Respect Life elements, please contact Mary Turner, 919 365-8354, or Cindy Yauger, 919 623-9933. There is so much work to be done. We welcome your participation in “Building a Culture of Life”.
