This beautiful prayer
was composed
by our first pastor,


Fr. James L. Krusling,

a good and faithful

servant of the Lord.

Prayer to St. Helen

St. Helen, our heavenly patroness,

intercede before the throne

of our God for us

in this parish dedicated to you,

that we, as a parish,

might be established in faith

and grow in the virtue of charity;

that we might be examples of love;

that others, seeing our love and charity,

may be attracted

and come to know the Master better. 


Intercede for our family

in time of trial

that we may be united in love

and never forget

that He who allowed the trial

will also give His grace to conquer.

Watch over our parish

and all those dedicated to God

through your patronage.
