Toronto Catholic District School Board

School History And Tradition
 
 
St. Eugene Catholic Elementary School opened in September, 1970 to serve the needs of children living in the Islington Avenue, Richview Side Road area of Weston.  Located in the former City of Etobicoke, this open complex school was built to accommodate approximately 340 students from kindergarten to grade 8. St.Eugene Catholic school
 
St. Eugene is one of three schools in All Saints Parish and is named after Pope Eugene I, a Roman brought up in the service of the Church who reigned from 654 AD to 657 AD.  Historians describe him as being “outstanding for his sanctity” and as “gentle and affable with the poor”. 
 
Reverend Martin O’Grady, the pastor of All Saints Church, suggested the name to the Board in memory of his late father, the late Martin Eugene O’Grady.  The school celebrated 25 years of service to the community in 1995.
