Outreach Ministries

If you would like to donate to, or participate in, a local outreach program, send us an email at outreach@sthelenas.net.

In addition to the parish-based ministries listed below, St. Helena's hosts several community groups that regularly meet on our campus.  More information about them is provided here; their meeting times are included on our Weekly Offerings page.

Please call the church office for phone and email contact information where not shown below.

  • A Walk in Bethlehem

    As you enter the city, allow the sights, sounds and smells to carry you to a period of time that changed the world. Journey through the heart of the city after being counted for the census. Collect your denarii (provided before entrance)  and enter the marketplace that is bustling with activity from over a dozen authentic shops; enjoy samples from the baker’s shop, marvel at the potter’s, carpenter’s  & basket weaver’s crafts and listen for the rumor of a king’s birth from excited townspeople.  The highlight of the event will be the arrival of the Christ Child and a traditional nativity scene including camels and Magi.

  • Blessings In A Backpack

    St. Helena's partners with the non-profit organization Blessings In A Backpack by donating peanut butter, canned chicken and canned turkey to keep Boerne children fed during the weekends. Please leave your donations at the entrance of your service or at the mission station (in the parking lot end of the Parish Hall entrance). Contact: Dawn McLendon
