Brief Parish History

St Eulalia lived during the persecution of the Diocletian. During the persecution as a twelve year old, she went to the tribunal and professed her faith. She was martyred with St. Julia of Merida. She is the patron saint of sailors, the cathedral, and city of Barcelona.

Our church was first dedicated in 1928 and was associated with St. Catherine's Parish. In the fall of 1950 it became a separate parish and was named St. Eulalia's. The name was chosen by the Sullivan family. Eulalia was the name of Mrs. Sullivan's mother and daughter. St Eulialia was established as a parish by Bishop William Hafey.

St Eulalia's Church continued to grow. It soon became apparent that the Church needed room to expand. Land was purchased on Blue Shutter's Road to plan for this expansion. This land would become the new location of St Eulalia Parish.

On March 13, 1982 Father John J. Kilpatrick, announced, the start of a funding drive for the new center. Ground was broken for the project August 28th 1983. The new Church building was dedicated Sunday July 15, 1984.

The new center consisted of the Church and rectory as well as another building which encompasses the parish hall, a small chapel, and religious education classrooms.
