Welcome to the Church of Saint Helena

Saint Helena parish, in southwestern West Hartford, was created on September 13, 1966, by Archbishop Henry J. O'Brien, with Father Joseph G. Murphy appointed first pastor. Until the parish had a permanent church, Father Murphy celebrated Sunday liturgy at the Louise Duffy School where on September 25, 1966, St. Helena's first liturgy was offered. May 5, 1968 was the date of the ground breaking for a new church. Meanwhile, church contstruction moved forward, and on September 14, 1969 St. Helena church was dedicated by Archbishop John. F. Whealon. On September 9, 1971, a parish nursery school began.
