The Women of St. Helen is the local chapter of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America (AOCWNA), a national women’s group sanctioned by the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America.
The purpose of Antiochian Women is to guide women in the church in:
(1) Christian leadership
(2) Awareness and commitment to the church
(3) Fostering love through charitable acts
(4) Creating a sense of fellowship and understanding of our heritage and traditions
The Women of St. Helen is a self-sufficient, active group of women belonging to Sts. Constantine and Helen Church that strive to help those in our church and community. Over the past number of years, we have consistently supported the various projects set forth by the Metropolitan, supported a child in Lebanon, and provided the Medical Center of Plano various items (knit lap blankets, chemo caps, baby burial kimonos, and sewn pillowcases) as an ongoing community outreach project. We have put on luncheons, dinners, a fashion show, had retreats, raffles, and sold various items, all while enjoying the company of the many friends we have made at Sts. Constantine and Helen.
