A Year Dedicated to Peace and Healing ... 150th. Anniversary.
When we started our Anniversary year we had no idea how prophetic and important our slogan ... A Year Dedicated to Peace and Healing ... would be to us. We need to savor the success and glory to God we've enjoyed in our past parish life. Even with the closing of our school we celebrate the 150 years of strong Catholic education that is the School's legacy.

Church Repainting ... the work has started!
The restoration is underway! After all the planning, parish communications, and raising of funds the restoration of 14 Holy Helpers Church has begun. Quite honestly, our dear church has been turned into a construction zone. Nevertheless, the work is expected to be completed in time for our 150th. Anniversary Mass in October. Please go to the Church Restoration and Repainting page for details and images of the design. Come back often and follow the progress along with us.
