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 is saddened by the news that our devoted and beloved friend, Harry Goff, died on June 14. Harry lived a life of service - to his family, his country, and his church. He was faithful and dedicated to the children we serve through his work on ECM's Board (2012-2018) and Advisory Council (2018 - present), and as a staff member at the St. Louis County Juvenile Detention Center. Harry also served on Diocesan Council, Cathedral Chapter and volunteered at his home congregation of St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church - Florissant. He is fondly remembered and will be greatly missed.

During the month of June, four children in the juvenile detention centers in St. Louis will have a birthday. While their past and present are troubled - and their future may be uncertain, NOTHING is too big for the transformational power of God's love! Thanks to Becky Coulter and Grace Episcopal Church, Kirkwood, MO and Tammy Schuster and Transfiguration Episcopal Church - Lake Saint Louis for providing supplies for ECM's June Birthday Celebrations. These monthly celebrations remind the children that they are God's own, beautifully-made, beloved children. They are NOT forgotten! There is hope and healing in that knowledge. Thanks be to God for our birthday volunteers and their congregations! #hopeandhealing

When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.
