The Pastoral Care ministries foster a deep sense of connection and care with members of our parish family who are ill or who find it difficult or impossible to physically attend church on Sunday.

COH is a Christian community of lay pastoral caregivers united in prayer, shaped by Benedictine spirituality, and trained for pastoral ministry. These caregivers are taught a ministry of presence in order to bring the presence of Christ to the suffering. COH members give spiritual care to people in hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and private residences. Please consider joining this very personal and important ministry.

Hospital Visitations

Due to government-imposed health privacy regulations implemented in 2003, it has become increasingly difficult for CSMSG’s Pastoral Care Ministry to stay up-to-date regarding parishioners who may have been admitted to the hospital or other medical facility. Therefore, it’s more important than ever that family and friends notify the CSMSG of any hospital admission.

To report that a parishioner is in the hospital and to request a visit, call the Church at 314.721.1502 during regular business hours.

Heavenly Meals

Our Heavenly Meals team of culinary caregivers continues to quietly provide meals for parishioners in the midst of challenging times, such as the arrival of a new baby, a health crisis, a death in the family, or a move or other significant life transition. To join the Heavenly Meals team or to request their culinary support, please email Becky Melander or call her at 314.862.6640.


The Knitting Ministry gathers the second Saturday of each month as we work on projects to support the church and community. Projects include mantles for the sick and bereaved, chemo caps for cancer patients, hats & scarves that go to school kids through the Little Bit Foundation, among others. We will teach you to knit if you don’t know how.  All are welcome!


Our mission is to provide support to new parents and their family. Please contact Laurie Brown at
