St. Helena Catholic Church is located in the northeastern corner of San Antonio. The parish was founded in 1974. From the beginning, the people of St. Helena Parish have chosen to be generous with their time, talent and treasure. They have been active and involved in all aspects of parish life. They chose the motto "People Helping People" as an apt description of the spirit of St. Helena's parishioners.
Today the parish has grown to over 3,500 families and the facilities have grown also. Hundreds of lay ministers help promote, vibrant, reverent celebrations of the Eucharist. Dozens of people assist in faith formation. Dozens more are involved in various organizations, retreats, sports and service projects. We invite you to come get in contact with Jesus Christ through His Church: "Peace be with you." (John 20:19)
