St. Helena Catholic Church is a historic church building located at Oak and Tainter Streets in St. Helena, California. Built from 1889 to 1890, the church was constructed with stone, a common building material among early settlers of the Napa Valley. The church was designed in an English Medieval style with a Gothic tower. The church was restored in 1945 after a fire burned its interior; during the renovations, the tower was also redesigned and two sacristies were added. The church is now the only remaining stone church in Napa County.[2]

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 23, 1978.[1]
