It is you, Oh God, who brings us together as Episcopal Church Women of St. Mary’s. Give us grace to accomplish Your purpose for use. Guide and inspire us to do good for St. Mary’s, our neighborhood, community and our world. Bless us with respect, compassion and love for one another, and keep us faithful to Your and our Lord Jesus Christ, in whose Name we pray. Amen
WHO WE ARE
We are all women of St. Mary’s, rooted in our past and growing into God’s future. ECW meets on the second Sunday of each month for prayerful reflection following the 10 am service. Planning meetings are held on the third Sunday of the month, also following the 10 am service.
Our purpose is to assist the women of the Episcopal Church to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world and to take their place as leaders in the life, governance and worship of the church. At St. Mary’s this includes planning and hosting neighborhood children’s Halloween and Epiphany Parties, as well as educational forums for adults.
The Episcopal Church Women begins in the local congregation, and continues at the diocesan, provincial and national levels. Each has its own unique characteristics which enable the mission and ministry of women. Episcopal Church Women are an integral part of the Episcopal Church USA which consists of nine provinces and is a part of the world wide Anglican Communion.
