Founded in 1886 only 10 years after the first Society for Ethical Culture was established in New York City, the Ethical Society of St. Louis is incorporated in the state of Missouri as a charitable, religious, and educational corporation.
The Ethical Society of St. Louis, from the very beginning, gathered to inspire free thought, the edification of working‑class people, and the cultivation of the inner ethical life.

Ethical Society of St. Louis is a welcoming home to Humanists, and community is very important to us. We want you to feel a part of our community and that, for many people, means more than just coming to our Sunday Programs.
