Parish Ministries

"Your destiny is to be apostles, and so tend within your hearts the sacred fire that the Holy Spirit lights there..."
Community Spirit Committee 

Mission Statement

"To 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

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.

The Prayer Blanket Ministry

We are 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 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 first and third Fridays of the month at 10 am.  Please see the bulletin for times/dates as the schedule is subject to change in case of holidays.
