The Order of St. Helena is a religious order in the Episcopal Church for lay and ordained women. We witness to a contemporary interpretation of traditional monasticism, open to the leading of the Holy Spirit as we proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since our founding in 1945, our experience of the religious life has included prayer, the individual, the Church at large, and social action.
