Can You Help Make Masks?

The women of St. Francis in Eureka, MO have received a request to sew COVID-19 masks for St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, MO and are asking for help in meeting this request. The need is great and we know we can count on the good people of the Episcopal Diocese to help. The volunteer coordinator at St. Luke’s stated they will need 5,000 masks per day within the next couple of weeks. More info

The Transition Center of St. Louis is in need of masks if you can help please contact Director of Children’s Education, Mary Beth Tipton at mtipton@csmsg.org.

Make Birthday Cards for ECM

Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention volunteers are not able to host birthday parties at the St. Louis County Detention Center but will supply the center with items needed to recognize birthdays, including pizza and birthday cake. All parishioners are invited to make cards with an uplifting bible verse or simple birthday message for youth celebrating birthdays. Please leave cards in the container marked “Birthday Cards for ECM” located underneath the bench in the Page Garden on the north side of the church.
