2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Parish Community of Saint Helen. From a small group of faithful who began meeting for Sunday Mass at Edison Middle School, to our vibrant parish of over 4,000 families, St. Helen has been an integral part of the spiritual fabric of Westfield and surrounding communities since 1968.

"Fr. Charlie Hudson was a Friend of Mine"

In 1968, Father Hudson met Peggy Coloney ( a parishioner of St. Helen) who was a nurse at Saint Elizabeth Hospital, Elizabeth, NJ. They both could see that the emotional and spiritual needs of the sick and dying were not being addressed. They took it upon themselves to do more; and in 1983, they founded the Center For Hope Hospice.  Fr. Hudson was also a beloved weekend associate at St. Helen for many years.
