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.

The children at the St. Louis City and County juvenile detention centers were NOT forgotten this month in the "busyness" of the holiday season. Thanks to St. John's, Tower Grove and Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion for supplying pizza, soda, treats and gifts for the November birthday celebration. And it wouldn't be an ECM birthday party without the donation of custard from our friends at Ted Drewes Inc. (It really IS good, guys!)

We are THANKFUL for our friends Emmanuel Episcopal Church-Webster Groves and their Outreach Committee for sending 5 dozen Thanksgiving goody bags to the children in the St. Louis City and County Juvenile Detention Centers. A special shout out to Mary Jane Moxley Kuhn (our Parish Ambassador at Emmanuel) for getting the project started. We are blessed with generous donors and partner congregations throughout the year. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Does your family have a Thanksgiving tradition of service? Maybe this year it will be participating in our Holiday Gifts Program for children in the juvenile justice system. We believe every child should know the magic of the holiday season—including those in St. Louis’ Juvenile Detention Centers. It’s especially important this year when NO visitors are allowed! See below for more details and let's give the gift of LOVE to the kids in detention this holiday season.
