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.

Love was embodied to the children at St. Louis' Juvenile Detention Centers by our wonderful volunteers from St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Carondelet - St. Louis and Episcopal Church of All Saints and Ascension when they provided the September birthday celebration. Chaplain Deborah Burris said, “One kid was so moved by receiving a gift that he kept saying how much he appreciated the gift and ‘Thank you!’ He asked if he could give me a hug, and I said ‘yes’ and gave him a hug. So, I pass his hug on to you.” Thank you to all our birthday volunteers for being vessels of God’s love for these children.
