COGS and the Episcopal Church

About Good Shepherd

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd was established as a mission of the Diocese of Missouri in 1953, sponsored by St. Peter’s Church in Ladue.  In 1956 the congregation became a parish, and located to its present site in Town & Country.  We are currently on a new path, sharing our rector,  Rev. C.  Earl Mahan, with St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Manchester. We are trying new things and discovering what it looks like to be co-workers in ministry and sharing the Good News of Christ in new ways.   You are always welcome to join us as we explore and live our journey of faith. We would love for you to be a part of who we are becoming!
