Welcome to the Cass Family, New Church Members
Cody, Katie and Carter Cass live in Southampton in St. Louis City. Carter is 9.5 months old and is crawling all over the place. He is the sweetest baby and so much fun. Cody works at Express Scripts in Specialty Pharmacy and Katie works at Barnes Jewish Hospital as a Nurse Anesthetist. We love the outdoors and spend as much time as we can at our family property in St. Clair, MO. We are very excited to join the FDP family.
Welcome Guest Preacher Rev. Miriam Foltz
We welcome Rev. Miriam Foltz, organizing pastor of UKirk, to Faith Des Peres. UKirk, or 'university church,' is the new Presbyterian campus ministry at Washington University & St. Louis University. Under the oversight of the Presbytery's New Worshiping Communities Commission, UKirk launched in January 2015 under the leadership of Pastor Miriam Foltz.
Housed at Trinity Presbyterian Church in University City, students gather there on Sunday evenings for dinner and worship with communion. UKirk connects during the week with students on campus through a Wednesday evening discussion group at SLU and through 'caffeinated conversations' on Friday afternoons at WashU. UKirk joined with the Lutheran (ELCA) Campus Ministry earlier this month for our first Fall Retreat, and we are busy planning upcoming mission projects, including a Spring Break Service Trip in March. It's an exciting time for Presbyterian campus ministry in St. Louis!
