Our Priests' Response

From the Pastor's Pen - August 11, 2019

Fr. Nickolai and I both addressed the painful area of clergy abuse of children (see below for link to a brief summary), after Archbishop Carlson published a list of any priests with “credible allegations” going back 50 years. This was in advance of a list soon to come out by the Missouri Attorney General. While this is a broad societal problem, with similar percentages of offenders among all groups, special harm is done to those who are victimized by someone in a position of great trust and faith. The Church continues efforts of screening applicants at every stage, and monitoring all in ministry, ordained or not.

Table of Plenty

If there are ANY parishioners who are in NEED of a warm, home cooked meal please come to the parish site every Tuesday in May from 5:30-6:30pm. Our Table of Plenty Volunteers will be providing to-go meals to those who
come by. They will begin serving in the parking lot at 5:30pm until the meals run out. Feel free to call ahead to the parish office at 314-837-3410 or e-mail Gina to let Table of Plenty know how many meals your family would like to pick up!

When SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital opened its doors as the nation’s first free-standing Catholic pediatric hospital, a promise was made to the community that any child in need of care would be welcomed, whether their parents could afford to pay for care or not. That promise still holds true today.


St. Louis has a long tradition of responding generously in times of crisis, coming together in solidarity to give hope to those in need. SSM Health Cardinal Glennon is a proud part of that tradition, and we need you now more than ever. 


In this extraordinary time of crisis, our costs to deliver care are extraordinary as well.  Now is the time for our dear friends in the faith community to come together and partner with us as we uphold a commitment to our mission of faith-filled health care services, delivered by some of the region’s best caregivers: Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.

Please join us by making a gift during Glennon Sunday weekend, June 6-7, online at glennon.org. Together we will continue to make miracles possible bringing God’s love and joy into the lives of our young patients. On behalf of our patients and families, may God bless you for providing hope, healing, faith and compassion to every child who walks through the doors at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon.
