About Episcopal City Mission and its programs:

Q: What does Episcopal City Mission do?

A: Episcopal City Mission provides chaplains for the ongoing spiritual needs of children in St. Louis City Detention, St. Louis County Detention, and Lakeside Center juvenile facilities.

 

Q: Why is Episcopal City Mission important?

A: Our chaplains help children in detention find hope. We help children
recognize and claim their own unique gifts. We help children in detention grieve, forgive, and find peace in their troubling circumstances. We pray for and with them. Because we do not ignore or judge these children they trust us with their gravest fears, their deepest regrets, and their most fragile hopes. We offer spiritual food for that part of each child that is starving.

 

Q: Is Episcopal City Mission “Episcopalians only”?

A: No. Episcopal City Mission is partially funded by the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, but our professionally trained chaplains come from three
different denominations — Baptist, Disciples of Christ, and United Church of Christ. Our chaplains are available to address the spiritual needs of the children in the detention centers, regardless of religious background or
affiliation.
