Creating Change in the World -- And Yourself
Deaconess Anne House, a member of the Episcopal Service Corps, is searching for young adults (ages 21-30) who are interested in serving others in solidarity through a full-time nonprofit or church placement, growing spiritually through daily prayer and weekly formation classes, and living intentionally in community with other young adults of faith.
The community at Deaconess Anne House is based in Benedictine spirituality, and the corps members create a common Rule of Life together that guides their community during their service year. This Rule provides intentionality to their actions and common life together.
During the week (Monday - Thursday), the corps members begin their day with morning prayer together and then serve with a nonprofit or church placement site, all of which do incredible work to serve alongside and advocate for those in the St. Louis area. The members do not work on Fridays. Instead, this is a day dedicated to individual and community formation through prayer, reflection, house meetings, vocational discernment, and professional development. During this time, corps members discern the different ways God is calling them in life, including how God is calling them to act justly in the neighborhood and regional community around them.
The Episcopal Service Corps is currently receiving applications for the August 2022 – July 2023 program year.
Please reach out to the Rev. Michaelene Miller, DAH Director, with any questions and/or feel free to connect her directly with any young adults that might be interested in exploring this opportunity to serve in St. Louis or with any Episcopal Service Corps program across the United States.
