A Rich History
Established in 1712 as a colonial parish of the Church of England, St. Helena’s is one of the oldest churches in America. The original church was built on the present site in 1724 and appears today as it did in 1842 following its final enlargement. Historical records are available for viewing/downloading below.

Amazing Grace - A History of the Parish 

Two and a half years of intensive research, writing, and editing flowered into Amazing Grace, a beautifully designed 8 ½” by 11” book that combines scholarly history and old and new photography. This book was published in 2011 to coincide with our Tricentennial Celebration in 2012. The hardbound book has a leather finish with gold foil stamping and a matching slipcase.
