Brian Shelton remembers sitting in the congregation as Archbishop Robert J. Carlson delivered a homily at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis in August 2015, on the one-year anniversary of shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson.
Shelton was deeply moved by what the archbishop said — that a culture of systemic racism had been uncovered, and healing and justice can only be achieved through respect for one another and a commitment to help others.
SSM Health has unveiled its plans for a new $550 million academic medical center in St. Louis to replace SSM Health St. Louis University Hospital.
The facility will be located north of the existing hospital's location on Grand Avenue and will better integrate the hospital with neighboring St. Louis University School of Medicine and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
