We Believe...

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Episcopal City Mission

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.

Congratulations to the children who just "graduated" from ECM's most recent "Hope and Healing" program. This 5-week program for "court-involved" youth focuses on grief and loss and was developed by our chaplains to help the children achieve HOPE through HEALING. Many of the children we serve struggle with the loss of a family member or friend by gun violence. The group meets weekly and, with the guidance of our chaplains, are encouraged to express their feelings, hopes, and dreams in order to allow themselves to know and be known by others, develop friendships and self-awareness. A special shout out to St Stephen's Ferguson for use of their beautiful parish hall! We're looking forward to holding the next session in June at Episcopal Church of the Advent Crestwood. #DioMo #HopeandHealing

Thanks to St. Mark's Church in St. Louis, An Episcopal Church with a Welcome for All and St. Timothy's Creve Coeur for hosting this month's ECM Birthday Celebrations at the City and County Juvenile Detention Centers. These celebrations (and FOOD!) reinforce our chaplain's message to the children that they are more than the mistakes they have made - they are beloved children of God. Special thanks to Ted Drewes Inc. for their generous donation of custard each month. #DioMO #hopeandhealing
