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.

ECM birthday celebrations in December and January were made possible by dedicated ECM Board member Steve Crock, ECM Exec. Director Beth Goad, ECM chaplains Deborah Burris and Kevin Aldridge, and volunteers Mary Jane Moxley Kuhn from Emmanuel Episcopal Church-Webster Groves and Claudine Allen from Christ Church Cathedral. As Mary Jane's mask reads, "Spread Joy" - and they certainly did!

Christmas came early for the Aldridge family this year as they welcomed baby Kierstin on December 19 (8lbs, 5oz.). When asked if we could share this happy news on Facebook and a picture of this beautiful baby, Kevin answered, Absolutely! I'm so proud! My heart is happy. God is faithful!" Congratulations to the Aldridge Family and welcome baby Kierstin!

Today ECM staff and friends wrapped holiday gifts provided by Episcopal congregations in the Diocese of Missouri and individual donors for 95 children in the juvenile justice system in St. Louis City and County.
“ Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas:
Star and angels gave the sign.
Love shall be our token;
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and neighbor,
Love for plea and gift and sign.”

Last evening Bishop Deon's sermon for our Convention Eucharist focused on the text, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few." (Matthew 9:37) ECM is grateful for ALL the "workers" who make Birthday Celebrations at the Juvenile Detention Centers possible, especially Dr. Rebecca Rugen and Holy Communion and Christine Cannon and St. John's Church - Tower Grove who "hosted" the November parties. Thank you for partnering with us; the harvest IS great! St. John's, Tower Grove, Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion, Episcopal Diocese of Missouri #diocesemo
