We Believe…

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Ministry of Presence Probably the most important aspect of the chaplains' time with the children is what we call “the ministry of presence”. Our chaplains walk the halls; visit the units; play cards, board games, or video games; or watch TV with the youth. The non-anxious presence of our chaplains reassures the teens that their spiritual well-being is being looked after.

Strike up the band for St. Timothy’s and The Gateway City Big Band! Their annual Harvest of Hope, this year benefiting, in part, Episcopal City Mission to the tune of over $8000, was a huge success. Smooth melodies summoning memories of yesteryear, along with tasty treats, made for a delicious evening of friends gathering for a worthy cause. ECM is thankful for their good works.
