Per Brittanica Online, St. Helena was renowned for helping not only individuals but entire communities through her works of charity. She often sought out to help the poor and destitute. She would visit churches and leave them with rich donations. St. Helena was a very devout servant of God, so much so that one would easily believe her to have been a follower of Jesus Christ from birth. Through her influence and work, Christianity continued to spread throughout the known world.
St. Helena is the patron saint of new discoveries and her feast day is celebrated on August 18.
