Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention

Chaplain Kevin Aldridge shared the following story at the 2017 Episcopal City Mission’s Annual Meeting:

“I recently ran into a boy who had been in detention about five years ago. He is now twenty-one, and I was happy to learn that he is on the right track. He has a job. He has an apartment. And, he is soon to be married!

“When I run into kids who have made it out, I always want to know what worked for them. I want to know what enabled them to turn their lives around so that I can use that information to help the children I see in the centers every day. So, when I asked Effram this question, I was humbled to hear his answer. ‘It was the fact that you, Chaplain Dietra, and Chaplain Jeff didn’t give up on me.’ He continued to say, ‘I want to thank you for not judging me. I want to thank you for not putting us kids down.’

“God, gives us small victories! It’s for this reason that I keep going back into the juvenile detention center—helping one kid at a time!”

You, and all of your fellow parishioners who bought the Lenten devotional book, have made a difference. Hopefully the daily devotionals have made a difference in your life this Lent.

Episcopal City Mission (ECM) is a St. Louis agency that provides chaplaincy services for the ongoing spiritual needs of youth in St. Louis area juvenile detention centers. We bring the love of Christ to these kids facing a myriad of life struggles. Ministry members involved in the Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention provide spiritual, personal, and material support to the chaplaincy work of the larger Episcopal City Mission, primarily at the St. Louis County Detention Center. The central activity of the members of this remarkable CSMSG Ministry is to throw a series of birthday parties at the Detention Center throughout the year complete with pizza, soda, presents, games, favors, and birthday cake. These parties are hosted by volunteers from our Church and supervised by ECM agency chaplains.

Shelter Ministry

sheleter-volunteers

Shelter Ministry volunteers arrive early each Sunday morning at the Gateway 180 Shelter in downtown St. Louis ready to prepare, cook, and serve a delicious breakfast to a crowd that sometimes numbers over a hundred people. In addition to cleaning up after the Sunday meal, volunteers also shop for the supplies needed to prepare breakfast and bring them to the Shelter every Sunday morning. This Ministry serves more than 4,000 community breakfasts each year. Sunday morning breakfast is the highlight of the week for many of the Shelter’s residents, as it is for many Shelter Ministry volunteers.

Volunteers Needed! We’re looking for a handful of additional dedicated volunteers who would be willing to commit to serving at the Shelter breakfast one Sunday a month: i.e., either the first, second, third, or fourth Sunday of each month. We need folks who will help with cooking, set-up, and serving breakfast from 6:15 AM to about 8:15 AM. We are also looking for volunteers to establish dishwashing crews for each Sunday from 7:30 AM -8:30 AM.

If any among you are willing to say, “Here I am”, please contact Nick Clifford at 314.224.5626 or nickclifsr@yahoo.com or Laurie Brown at laurie@csmsg.org.

World Service Mission to Nicaragua

Give to the Nicaraguan Ministry

The World Service Mission Ministry to Nicaragua is a longstanding and dedicated ministry at Church of St. Michael & St. George, providing hands-on Christian outreach in the rural neighborhood of Nejapa in the outskirts of Managua, Nicaragua since 2000. This ministry in the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere has helped to build a medical compound and guesthouses for visiting missionaries, and more importantly, helped to build the Carolina de Sirker Christian School in Nejapa. The school is thriving, thanks in part to the financial support that our church provides on an on-going basis. Every summer, we send a team to Nicaragua for a week or two to work at the school, doing maintenance projects and engaging with the students and staff whom we have come to know so well. We also take time to visit some of the beautiful places in Nicaragua. The mission trips are a wonderful and welcome opportunity for spiritual growth, as well as a way to make a difference in a country that very much needs our support. Join us on this great spiritual adventure by supporting the school or going on our trip!

The 2020 mission trip to Nicaragua will be Monday, August 3 through Monday, August 10, 2020. For more information, please contact Jennifer McGrath at jenmcgrath123@gmail.com or 412-334-6398.
