Our Mission

To share with our visitors the light of the Christ –as revealed in Christian Science– while acknowledging and celebrating their intrinsic good.

Thanks for stopping by the Downtown St. Louis Reading Room. We have a full basket of blessings for you. So take a look around and enjoy the inspiration. Our Video Testimonials and our Blogs offer touching messages of our healing mission, which is at the heart of What We Do. As well, you will find links to the Pulitzer Prize-winning weekly newsmagazine The Christian Science Monitor and our healing periodicals, the Sentinel and Journal.
