application helper


I'm trying to create a helper method within my /includes/helpers/
applicationHelper.cfm that gets the current handler package I'm in.
However I cannot reference the request context within this helper. I
need to be able to call "event.getCurrentEvent()" from my helper. What
would be the best way to do this?
Also does this need to be a template or can I replace the default
template with a cfc, then point to it via my coldbox config?
