COLCHESTER: The Parish of St Helen

Traveling the United Kingdom as an Orthodox pilgrim, you just never know what you might find. There was a time when I wanted to start a mission in Charlotte, North Carolina and name it for St Helen. I was told that it would need to be named for Ss Constantine & Helen. Regardless, it never came to fruition. But, my youngest daughter, Helen will be happy to note that there is a parish named for [only] her patron saint in Colchester, England. Colchester has a rich history — as does the Parish of St Helen.

Here are some pics from my visit this past Sunday.
