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.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 2015 - 2016br> 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! Before the summer begins, it is a good time to take care of this matter for your children, We ask that all registrations be returned to St. Eugene Rectory, P.O. 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.
