This vibrant group has both an inward focus and an outward focus. The inward focus supports the already active faith of parishioners. In addition to sponsoring outside speakers and events on various topics, EV offers several ongoing educational and spiritually-based programs for adults in the parish who wish to understand and enter into their faith more deeply.
The outward focus invites others, both non-Catholics and inactive Catholics, into relationship with Jesus through the Catholic Church. One example of this would be our Neighborhood Walks program where teams of two knock on doors, tell folks they're from St. Helen's, and ask if there is anything going on in their lives for which we can pray. We leave them a bag of goodies, wish them a great weekend, and are on our way!
