We will gather for worship at 11AM.
After worship everyone is invited to Coffee Hour. We look forward to seeing you!
If you’re a local, you’ve passed us dozens of times. You know…the little stone church on New Lenox Road?
If you’ve never ventured off Route 7, well, maybe you should. A kitchen utensil store, Different Drummer’s Kitchen, is at the corner of Route7 and New Lenox Road. This quiet, picturesque property tucked away in historic Berkshires hosts a beautiful Episcopal church that’s been around for over 150 years.
But, while the setting, and the building and the history are great, they’re not what makes St. Helena’s Chapel worth visiting.
It’s the people. It’s how God is active and real in their lives. It’s how God’s Spirit pulls them together into a unique, warm, authentic family.
Above all, St. Helena’s is a place where you can come as you are and experience God’s amazing grace!
St. Helena’s Chapel meets for worship on Sunday mornings at 11 AM. If you are visiting Berkshire County or a life long resident, we’d love for you to join us. What can you expect? First of all, St. Helena’s Chapel is a “come as you are” church, where everyone is welcome. Those who have never been to church before, those who have left the church, or those who have been long time members find their place here. Children are very welcome and are an important part of our worshipping community! On the first Sunday of every month, the children help lead worship by serving as acolytes, readers, and ushers. It’s a wonderful way to encourage the children to be active and to teach them that they are important to us and to our faith community. Throughout the school year, children are also encouraged to participate in Sunday School, which meets during the first part of worship in the adjoining Parish Hall. The children rejoin worship following the sermon and announcements. We celebrate the Holy Eucharist every Sunday and we observe the liturgies in the Book of Common Prayer as well as other supplemental liturgical materials.
An important part of our mission is to extend a warm welcome to all, to those who call the Berkshires their home, and also to those who are “passing thorough”. Of those who visit the area, often there are couples looking for a special location for their wedding ceremony. At St. Helena’s , we feel that an important part of our ministry is to offer our hospitality in helping to host these ceremonies in our Chapel.
We offer pastoral support and counseling in planning your marriage or vow renewal ceremony and your new life together. Please contact the church office for more information and availability.
After worship on Sundays, our time of fellowship continues as we meet in the Parish Hall for Coffee Hour. It’s a wonderful time of connecting with others and being a part of the church family. We’d love to have you join us!
