1Monday, September 12, 10:00 am

Story Time will resume at St. Martin’s on September 12. We meet in the nursery from 10:00-11:00am. This special ministry is for children 12 months and up and their caregivers. We have moms that bring their little ones but we also have nannies, Dads, and grandparents.

Each week we have a special theme and stories, music, drama and an art activity are coordinated around it. We also allow little ones time to play in our beautiful new nursery. It is a fun time for all!

In the past two years we have had a wonderful core group of 12 children and their caregivers but this year, most of them will be in either preschool or kindergarten. WE NEED SOME NEW MEMBERS! If you know of a neighbor or relative who is available on Monday mornings we would love to have them. Interested folks are welcome to call me at 636.394.7085 for more information.

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.
