In Gratitude of Bishop Smith

Our farewell gift to Bishop Smith is the establishment of the Director's Discretionary Fund for the Deaconess Anne House. This ministry is near and dear to the heart of our bishop. DAH is a member of the Episcopal Service Corps, bringing young adults together to live in intentional community, worshiping and serving in Old North St. Louis.

Your gift to this fund will provide ongoing financial support for:

  • Corps member emergency needs in times of unanticipated expenses
  • Corps member continuing education and training experiences
  • Neighborhood support for those in need

Visit the DONATE page on this website to make an online donation to Bishop Smith's farewell gift.
