Planned Giving at CSMSG

Planned Giving is a term for the number of ways in which parishioners can insure that their stewardship efforts continue after their death by making a gift to the Endowment Fund. If you care enough about your church to make a faithful annual pledge, contributing to our Endowment Fund should be a natural next step.

Holy Week Preacher

The Rt. Rev. and Rt. Hon. George Carey

was born in East London in 1935 and served with the Royal Air Force in Iraq in the 1950s. At 17, Carey became a Christian after attending a church service with friends; he experienced "a quiet conviction I had found something." After graduation from London College of Divinity taking an Associate Degree, and King's College London and earning a Bachelor of Divinity degree, Hons; he served as a curate in London. During this time, he earned both Master of Theology and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. In 1991, he was invited to take up the post of 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury, and served 70 million Anglicans around the world until his retirement in 2002.

 

His archepicopacy was characterized by his commitment to ecumenism and evangelicalism. The decade that Carey served as archbishop saw the ordination of women in the Church of England as well as the historic 1998 Lambeth Conference, which navigated many divisive issues through the Communion with dignity and grace.

 

Since retiring as archbishop, Carey has continued to be an active voice for inter-religious efforts, especially with Muslims. He also remains a prominent supporter of religious freedom.

Steak & Stories

6 PM    Great Hall

Spring has sprung! Please join us for Steak & Stories on April 8 from 6-8 PM!

 

Christopher Desloge, a Roman Catholic by heritage, has been a proud and excited member of St. Michael & St. George since 2010. In addition to his family business, he has used his ability as a writer, historian, "ancestrist", devoted man of God, and his activity in lay ministry serving the poor and homeless to bring to Steak & Stories a special perspective drawing from his ancestry to near the time of Christ.  

 

While the Desloge name is a part of the St. Louis historical narrative since the early 1800s, Chris Desloge will share with us excerpts from two of his books which tie the providence of God as played out in exciting historical moments, how this Providence settles on us and challenges us in our society today, while also questioning about the future, and how he trusts God will continue to form man's framework a thousand years hence. 

 

Mr. Desloge will offer excerpts from his books in context with God's role in His and our own desire for human improvement, and our shifting ethos over the centuries, and for centuries to come.

 

To make reservations, please contact the Receptionist of the Church at reception@csmsg.org or 314.721.1502 by Monday, April 7.

Ted Drewes donates frozen custard, and the hosting church provides pizza, soda, and small birthday gifts. The party begins with prayer and introductions, followed by acknowledgment of birthdays.

Guild Tidings Newsletter  

 

Seeking Writers for CSMSG's "Guild Tidings" Newsletter

 

CSMSG's "Guild Tidings" are newsletters envisioned to be directed by and for the members of our various Guilds. The focus of the newsletters will be on sharing information about Guild members as well as sharing specific information needed to better perform the Guilds assigned duties. The articles will be a little longer than what is written in the parish weekly e-letters and the Sunday service leaflets. In addition, archived copies of the newsletters can be used to tell a Guild's story and help attract new volunteers to that area of service. For more information, contact Denise Chachere at drchachere@sbcglobal.net.

Do you travel travel frequently? Don't forget to save those unopened hotel toiletries for the 2014 mission trip to Nicaragua. (Ask your well-traveled friends and your co-workers, too!) Missioners take toiletry bags of soap, shampoo, and lotion to the patients at the women's and children's hospital in Managua. 400 toiletry bags are distributed by the missioners to the patients.

 

Toothbrushes and toothpaste go to the kids at the schools in Santa Rosa and Nejapa for healthy and bright smiles! (Does your dentist have extras?) All donations can be dropped off at the Nicaragua donation closet located across from the Church Library. Gracias!

  

Hunger Ministry

Hunger Ministry has a new location for Meal a Month donations and recipes for casseroles. To the left of the Taylor Room are two closets marked for Hunger Ministry. Pans, recipes, Meal a Month Yellow Bags, and shelves to place filled Meal a Month Bags are all now located together.

We need folks who will help with cooking, set-up, and serving breakfast from 6:15 AM to about 8:15 AM. We are also looking for volunteers to form dishwashing crews for each Sunday.
