Episcopal Church Women ("ECW")
Grace Episcopal Church's formal women’s group. It is part of a broader national organization of episcopal women working together under the National Board of the Episcopal Church Women to support women in their ordained mission and ministry around the world. Its members aspire to be a peacemaking, healing part of the church and to share the love of Christ with all whom they come in contact.
In pursuit of such goals, the women of ECW at Grace pursue initiatives and activities designed primarily to:
- Strengthen lines of communication through the Communiqué website and diocesan and provincial visitations
- Establish Women of Vision and Call to Action programs in every diocese
- Incorporate and reflect the perspective of a vibrant blend of women in meetings held by the national organization of Episcopal Church Women, including Annual and Deanery Meetings
- Encourage familiarity with and participate in programs offered by Episcopal Church Women, including its quarterly Collection of Canned Goods/Food Pantry, annual Valentine’s Dance, and annual Ladies’ Brunch
Most importantly, serve God and give him the glory.
