The Social Justice Ministry committee is a group that seeks to bring to life our baptismal covenant to “strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.” This committee will work to honor and actualize the Anti-Racism Covenant of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, support the work of the Diocesan Commission for Dismantling Racism, and align with the Missouri Chapter Union of Black Episcopalians.
We will work to eliminate racism in our congregation and community through education and community outreach. We pray our work will change mindsets for the common good. We look to be our brother’s and sister’s keeper as we love our neighbors as ourselves and create the change we want to see.
As best said by the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church “love is the way.” We welcome and invite you to bring your time, talent, and treasure to join us in this important work for the people! For more information or volunteer, please contact one of the following: Valerie E. Patton or Adrienne Dillion.

Creve Coeur to honor Dr. H. Phillip Venable
The city of Creve Coeur, MO plans to create a monument to honor former All Saints member, Dr. H. Phillip Venable, who was an ophthalmologist at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis.
The monument is intended to highlight the late doctor’s legacy, and acknowledge how the city discriminated against him by forcing him to sell his property in the late 1950’s. Creve Coeur officials are seeking an artist to design the monument for the Dr. H. Phillip Venable Memorial Park. CLICK to read full story
