“The Church wishes to offer the military and their families the specific help they need to carry out their mission in a spirit of Christian charity.”
To all servicemen, servicewomen, veterans, and family members:
Welcome! We are happy to have you, especially from WPAFB, as our neighbors. We hope you will find St. Helen a Catholic community to encounter God's mercy and love!
-Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
