Your pledge dollars at work: The Nicaragua Missioners are off to Managua to bring the good news of Christ's love, assist in desperately needed services and provide basic education supplies to the poor. Your pledge dollars equip The Church of St. Michael & St. George Missioners to be a community that tells the story of Jesus Christ within our walls and beyond. Thank you for your pledge!

Your help is needed, please consider giving a gift or increasing your pledge. If you have not yet filled out a pledge card, please do so. Every pledge supports our church with a vital mission and ministry seven days a week. 

Pledge cards are available onlineat church, or contact Laurie at

Planned Giving at CSMSG: Planned Giving is a term for the number of ways in which parishioners can ensure 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. If you are interested in more information about making a planned gift to CSMSG, please visit our website
for more information, or contact the Rector's Office at 314.721.1502.

The police department has been receiving complaints regarding folks parking too close to driveways, particularly on Sundays. This makes it difficult for neighbors to back out of their driveways on Ellenwood, Cecil, and Wydown as cars are generally parked on both sides of these already narrow streets.
Please leave a minimum of two feet on either side of driveway. The police department does not want to begin issuing tickets on Sundays, but if this continues to occur they will have no alternative. 
Thank you for your understanding.
Directory Photos Needed
If your photo is not in the Directory we need one from you! Please email a family and/or individual photo to Laurie@csmsg.org.
