"I am the vine; you are the branches." — John 15:5

St. Helen’s Quiet Garden graces the church property at 1234 Prestone Drive, Orleans, Ontario. It serves as a place to pause in the midst of life’s whirlwind and to experience the beauty of God’s creation.  As a sanctuary that prompts prayer, contemplation and reflection, it is also a holy site that remembers those we love who are now in Christ’s nearer presence. Please feel free to visit our Garden, a place of wonder and witness, of prayer, of hospitality and peace and a sign of faithful witness in our community.
