George Leo Thomas, PhD
Bishop of Helena
I join with the parishioners of the Cathedral of Saint Helena in welcoming you. As you inquire about our life in Christ, you will discover a people seeking to better understand our baptismal promises to live as children of Resurrection light and glory, guided by the Holy Spirit and in praise of the Father in and through the Name of Jesus.
In the beauty of both the Cathedral itself and the souls of the faithful who call this parish their spiritual home, you will come to share a journey of salvation ever ancient and ever new, told in stone and glass, in bread and wine and in prayer and sacramental grace. You will discover a generous people who are faithful stewards of time, talent and resources through their sacrificial love in Christ. You will find persons wounded, contrite and humbled and, in spite of our fears and unresolved issues, still seeking the wisdom of the Holy Spirit that instructs and sometimes admonishes us so that we might become instruments of Christ’s peace. You will celebrate with a faith family that delights in tasting and seeing the goodness of God in The Holy Eucharist and through the lives of our sisters and brothers in The Lord.
May Our Lady and Saint Joseph watch over and inspire you, and may Blessed Mary’s words, “Do whatever He asks of you”, be an opportunity to join us in this journey of discovery of our vocation. Whether you are joining us as a single person or a family, as a lay minister, religious or an ordained minister, together we may all better know and love and serve our Savior, Jesus Christ. May Saint Helena lead us to the Truth of the Cross and the courage to live it!
