What’s happening with Episcopal City Mission?

A FREE Concert at the Kirkwood Park Amphitheater

September 25 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm!

Come on out for an afternoon of music sponsored by Episcopal City Mission (ECM). There is no cover, but a good-will offering will be collected to allow ECM to continue providing hope and healing to the youth in St. Louis City and County juvenile detention centers!

There will be two acts for your listening pleasure this year!

Act I – John Denver Tribute

ECM Board Chair, Bill Wolff and friends will perform many of John Denver’s most beloved songs, including Sunshine, Country Roads, Annie’s Song, Rocky Mountain High and Calypso, as well as some lesser known gems.

 Act II – Gateway City Big Band

The Gateway City Big Band is a 17-piece band featuring two vocalists which have been entertaining audiences since 1966. They have a diverse library of music which includes authentic charts stretching from the big band era to more recent styles and artists.

             Pack a cooler and join us for this family-friendly event.

Kirkwood Park Amphitheater is located within Kirkwood Park which is west of downtown Kirkwood at the intersection of Geyer and Adams.

Inclement Weather? Please check our Facebook page, Episcopal City Mission, the afternoon of the concert for an update. We’ll let you know if the show will still go on!

We hope to see you there.

ALL ARE WELCOME!         BRING YOUR FRIENDS!

episcopaliansvoteSundays starting September 11th, 4:00-6:00 pm

Episcopalians can live out our call to care for our neighbors as ourselves by engaging in the public square. This November 8, our nation will head to the polls to decide a number of important elections, and there are many opportunities for Episcopalians to engage in this electoral process.

Father Jay and Father Jon are bringing this national conversation local with weekly discussions right here at St. Martin’s on Sunday evenings from 4-6 pm, starting September 11th.

“If we who are Christians participate in the political process and in the public discourse as we are called to do — the New Testament tells us that we are to participate in the life of the polis, in the life of our society — the principle on which Christians must vote is the principle, Does this look like love of neighbor?”         – Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, March 2016

Our St. Martin’s choir is in desperate need of new choir robes. We will need more than $4000 to vest our growing choir at $225.00 each. So far, we are HALFWAY there! If enough money is raised by the end of September, we can order them in time for Christmas. Please take a brightly colored envelope labeled Vest our Voices! and fill it with your appreciation and gratitude for our choir. You will find them in the pews or on the display in the narthex. Note on the check that it’s for the choir robe fund and place it in the offering or in the mail. Thanks so much for your generosity.
