Mission: The mission of St. Helena Parish is to serve the people of our various communities by providing the best local governmental services possible. Through the administrative and labor departments, the parish intends to assist residents to the best of its ability. St. Helena will make every effort to maintain the rural character for which it is famous by diligently caring for the land and all life that dwell thereon, while simultaneously encouraging economic development that will successfully integrate into this lifestyle. In carrying out these duties, St. Helena will strive to maintain a high ethic and moral standard, and through example, will encourage those whose lives intersect with the different segments of governmental, societal, and business sectors, in this parish, to do the same.
