Who we are
We are Episcopal Church women of all ages, ethnic origins and socioeconomic backgrouns who hold a variety of views. However, our common denominator is our love of God and the desire to do his work.
Centered in congregations, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) empower women to do Christ's ministry in the world.
Our vision for all womn of the Episcopal church is that we become a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together as a peacemaking, healing part of the church. We aspire to be a God spark - shining and sharing the love of Christ.
Episcopal Church Women's Prayer
Almighty God, we pray that You will bless our work in mission and ministry in the world. Help us to pray fervently, labor diligently and give liberally to make known the power of your love given through your son Jesus. Let us not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Anoint us with your grace and shine in our hearts as we reflect your light throughout the world. Amen.
