Last week 6 youth & 7 adults braved the “Outback” of Pulaski Park. Aidan Babbitt, Hunter Cassidy, Ian Parker, Christian King, Joseph McKitchen and Isabella McMahon along with Fr. Dandeneau, Barbara Laberge, Sarah Kiff, Nicole Previte, Mr. Joseph McKitchen, Raymond McMahon and the church secretary all took part in our first trail hike. The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all. A delicious “feast” of marinated chicken, potato salad, cole slaw, chips, smore’s (and you can’t forget the hot dogs!) were enjoyed at the Pavilion by the hungry hikers in front of an inviting campfire. A special THANK YOU to Mr. Joseph McKitchen for his talented cooking skills at the grill, to Barbara, Nicole and the McKitchen family for their generous donations toward the meal, and to Maryann McKitchen & Sarah Kiff for their help in transporting the hikers from trails end to the campsite. And last but not least, a very special THANK YOU to Fr. Dandeneau for leading us on this adventure!

Thank you so very much for the great send off last weekend. I am grateful for your support during my pastorate and for your tremendous witness of faith, hope and love over the years.
I thank you for the many kind words, best wishes, thoughtful cards and generous gifts. I wish to thank all those who helped with the reception, especially Helen Suess, Marie Robidoux, Deanna DiSalvo and Odete McMahon, so I could say “Farewell” after the 10:15AM Mass. It was a wonderful time and I am so happy I was able to say goodbye to so many great people. I was so very pleased to celebrate my final Mass at St. Eugene’s with such a great group of Altar Servers and the music by our choir was superb as usual.
For anyone who has helped and supported the parish in any way and for all those who have been so very kind and supportive to me personally, I say thank you. I truly give thanks to God for all of you and also thanks for sending me to this incredible place we call St. Eugene. My first pastorate has been a great blessing in my life and I wish God’s continued blessings upon all of you and this parish. God Speed! Farewell my friends!

Congratulations to all the children who received their First Holy Communion! First Communion is the beginning of a life of faith that continues to be strengthened and nourished by the Eucharist every Sunday at Mass.
