George E. Koeune
Welcome to St. Eugene Parish!
We are a welcoming community of believers
striving to live out our baptismal calling to follow the teachings of Jesus
Christ. Commissioned to go out into the world and let our Royal Priesthood
(the Royal Priesthood of the Baptized) shine forth.
Flowing from our baptism comes a responsibility.
A responsibility to teach, to counsel, to heal, forgive, comfort, feed
the hungry, to be a light for those in darkness, and a witness to the world
of what it means to be a Christian.
We are on a journey together, and I want
to welcome you to walk with us at St. Eugene's. I am the Pastor, but it
is Christ who is our leader.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. George Koeune

Patrick of Ireland (415-493) said:
shield me this day:
Christ with me, Christ before
me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath
me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ
on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every
person who thinks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees
Christ in the ear that hears
