Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention
EPISCOPAL CITY MISSION
BIRTHDAY PARTY INFORMATION
Since the Detention Center has restricted visitors in order to protect the children (and staff) from COVID-19, we have modified the way we do birthday parties. Now instead of going inside, the party hosts meet the chaplain just inside the doors of the County Courts Building (105 S. Central in Clayton) with food/supplies/gifts and take pictures. Remember to wear masks and social distance! Then, the Detention Center staff meet the group with carts to transport and distribute the food, goodie bags, and gifts to the children.
Attached are updated Birthday Party guidelines with modifications during the COVID-19 quarantine at the detention centers.
This new method is definitely not as much fun for us, but the parties are still important to the children. And now more than ever they need every bit of support we can give them!

The Shelter Ministry is on pause until further notice.
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.

Education Equity Ministry
CSMSG’s Education Equity Ministry is collecting monetary donations to provide toiletries to families of students at Sumner High School in St. Louis City. Over the summer months, many families have less access to services. By sending students home with a box full of toiletries for the summer, we are helping fill that gap. Donations for purchasing supplies may be made online via Realm or by check to The Church of St. Michael & St. George. Please note “For Education Equity Ministry” on the check.
Since its inception in March 2021, the CSMSG Education Equity Ministry has partnered with Sumner High School to identify barriers to online and in-person instruction. We help administrators at Sumner connect with agencies in our community to provide services needed by students and families. The school has praised the ministry for its recognition that education equity extends outside of the classroom. For more information about this ministry, contact Mary Ann Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org
World Service Mission to Nicaragua
The World Service Mission Ministry to Nicaragua is a longstanding and dedicated ministry at The 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!
