2019 Stewardship Campaign  

“We have been blessed over the years by SMSG. We pledge in thanks for that blessing and in the hope that our pledge can help the Church provide this blessing for others.”

Lulu and Carroll Stribling
2019 Stewardship Campaign Chairs
Did you know that The Church of St. Michael & St. George was formed in a merger of two churches? St. George’s Church dates back to 1845 in early St. Louis; it had three locations that followed the westward movement of the population of the city. The Church of St. Michael and All Angels was organized in 1913 as a mission congregation on the campus of Washington University and located on the edge of the 1904 World’s Fair grounds just west of what is now Forest Park. The two churches merged in 1928; The Church of St. Michael & St. George immediately became heir to the rich background of the fourth oldest Episcopal congregation in the city of St. Louis and to the vigor of the youngest.
THE GREAT WAR TOUCHES THE CHURCH OF ST. MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS
 
On Veterans’ Day, November 11, we will commemorate the centennial of the armistice that ended the Great War. John Tyler’s new book— The Great War Touches The Church of St. Michael and All Angels —tells the story of how the Great War impacted the Skinker family and the entire parish. It is an exciting story, but one of great sadness. Two sons were lost. A recently-married woman was suddenly widowed. Two women worked tirelessly on the home front to support the troops. The book can be purchased for $9.99 in the Great Hall on October 21 & 28 and November 4. Sales proceeds in excess of printing costs will be donated to the newly-renovated Soldiers Memorial Military Museum. Click on this link for a preview of the book.
THIS SUNDAY
Sunday, October 7
RECTOR’S FORUM BEGINS : Please join the Rector as he leads a study of “Caesar and the Christians” from 10:30-11:00 AM in the Taylor Room. Everyone is welcome.

SUSAN MOUNT SUNDAY: Many Episcopal churches have just one name. We have two names and have since 1928 when St. George’s Church in St. Louis joined forces with The Church of St. Michael and All Angels in Clayton on the site of our Church today.

Sunday, the flowers at the High Altar will honor Miss Susan Mount and give thanks for her anonymous financial contribution of more than $50,000 from 1911 through 1914 to the building fund for The Church of St. Michael and All Angels building, rectory, and parish hall on this site.

It was not until 1917 that name of this donor was announced as Miss Mount, a parishioner of St. Paul’s Chapel of Trinity Church in New York City and good friend of Bishop Tuttle, the Third Bishop of the Diocese of Missouri and Presiding Bishop of the U.S. from 1903–1923. Thank you, Miss Mount.

EVENSONG: Evensong resumes this Sunday, October 7 at 5 PM with Solemn Evensong and Te Deum for Michaelmas. The choir will sing the Evening Service in E minor of Leo Sowerby along with music of Bernard Barrell, Raymond Weidner, Robert Lehman, Ernest Bullock, and the Te Deum laudamus for St. George’s Chapel, Windsor by Herbert Howells. The Te Deum is the Church’s greatest hymn of thanksgiving and it is offered in the name of our patron saint and in thanks for The Church of St. Michael & St. George. Please plan to join us for this beautiful, contemplative liturgy to mark the ending of the day and our Feast of Title, and plan to make regular attendance at Evensong one of your commitments for the 2018-19 season.

JTM WOMEN'S MINISTRY FUND
By now, you've heard the devastating news about Jan Torrisi-Mokwa. Jan was invaluable in enhancing the Women's Ministry at The Church of St. Michael & St. George, as well as founding the ECW Steering Council by lovingly guiding the group through a process that brought our value and mission statements to fruition. One of the ways that her memory will be honored is by establishing a fund to support the Women's Retreats that Jan so dearly loved. The money will be used to pay for retreat leaders as well as provide scholarships for attendees. If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to CSMSG and note "JTM Women's Ministry Fund" in the memo. Please contact Laurie Brown at Laurie@csmsg.org if you have any questions.
