Episcopal Church Women
We are all women of the Episcopal Church: rooted in our past and growing into God's Future.
Our Mission: Episcopal Church Women exists to support all women in their Mission and Ministry in the world.
Our Vision for all women 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.
We have an active ECW at Holy Cross. We meet the 2nd Sunday of every month in Skiles Hall at 12:45 p.m. The organization awards college scholarships to graduating high school seniors; contributes to seminary students, the annual Angel Tree, and other charities; prepares a large array of jams, jellies, and baked goods for the Valle Country Fair; hosts a variety of fundraisers; collects diapers every March for a local children’s agency; serves the congregation an Easter Brunch, provides set up, clean up, beverages and food for funeral/memorial receptions. On occasion we have potluck dinners and speakers from local non-profits and charities.
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 Christ. 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.
