Parents and Youth,

We have enjoyed getting to know our youth members and are so excited to see what the future holds for our youth group! We have two youth groups; Alpha being 6th – 8th grade and Omega being 9th – 12th grade. Both youth groups will meet every week in the Hall. We will eat dinner together as one big youth group and then separate into Alpha and Omega for our spiritual time. This change allows both age groups to meet every week but also have their small group spiritual time every week as well.

If a parent is interested in providing dinner for a youth night, please contact Alexis to sign up for a week. Feel free to sign up at a youth night, or text or call Alexis on her cell phone at 985-351-4639.

Our youth team at St. Helena includes Alexis Verberne, Donna Ponson, and Laura Faust. We use the Remind App to communicate with our youth and parents, if you are not receiving our messages please let us know so we can get your number and add you to our messaging system so that we can keep you up to date on any youth events, cancellations, etc. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call Alexis at 985-351-4639.

A Prayer for an End to Abortion

Heavenly Father,

Spare our nation from the scourge of abortion.

Protect the lives of children in the womb.

Give hope and strength to their mothers.

Stir love in the hearts of fathers to support and cherish mother and child.

Cause our elected leaders and the courts to recognize and protect the person hood of unborn children.

Lift up church leaders to proclaim a Culture of Life.

Lead parents who had abortions to repentance and healing.

Bring about the conversion of the abortionist, of those who deny the birthright of children and those who are indifferent.

Grant me the courage and energy to be a Defender of Life.

I ask this through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.march for life at church 3

We, at St. Helena Catholic Church, are concerned with educating, directing, and sustaining all who visit. 

In particular those who draw near to the teachings and traditions of Holy Mother Church. 

We strive to achieve this by utilizing the Cardinal Virtues of Justice, Prudence, Temperance and Fortitude.
