Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention

EPISCOPAL CITY MISSION
MOMENT IN TIME 2020 VIRTUAL GALA
“A New Chapter Built on Hope & Healing”
October 8, 6 PM

Mark your calendar and plan to join us as we celebrate “A New Chapter in Hope and Healing” at our first VIRTUAL Moment in Time gala fundraiser – at the location of your choice! Guests will enjoy a fun evening of live and silent auctions, raffles and much more! Watch for more details soon! Proceeds directly benefit ECM’s mission to provide hope and healing for children in St. Louis’ juvenile justice system.

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!

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 has been canceled due to the pandemic and political unrest in Nicaragua.
