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.

Episcopal Church Women is collecting entries for the updated ECW Outreach Booklet, which hasn't been updated since 2008.

New booklets will be printed this fall and distributed to the attendees and delegates of the 142nd EDWM Convention in Battle Creek, MI November 4-5, 2016. 

The reason the booklet is being updated is because it is important to acknowledge the contributions of parishes to their communities. New ideas can be shared among parishes. Crossing denominational boundaries develops other relationships in communities. No matter how small the effort, seeds can be planted that might grow into wonderful undertakings in communities. 

Does your congregation do any of the following:

  • Give to UTO?
  • Contribute to young members going to camp?
  • Arrange meals for the homebound?
  • Shop for someone who is unable to do so?
  • Participate in Crop Walk?
  • Provide transportation to medical appointments?
  • Participate in Christmas projects for the less fortunate?
  • Support a mission?

The list is endless and we are sure your parish, whether alone or with other churches in your area, offers outreach and much more. Small or large, we would like to hear from you.

Please submit narratives in a maximum of 500 words. The booklets will be available at our diocesan annual meeting in November.

Hymn of the Episcopal Church Women

God of the Women
SLANE ( ("Be Thou My Vision")
God of the women who answered your call,
Trusting your promises, giving their all,
Women like Sarah and Hannah and Ruth —
Give us their courage to live in your truth.
God of the women who walked Jesus' Way,
Giving their resources, learning to pray,
Mary, Joanna, Susanna, and more —
May we give freely as they did before.
God of the women long put to the test,
Left out of stories, forgotten, oppressed,
Quietly asking: "Who smiled at my birth?" —
In Jesus' dying you show us our worth.
God of the women who ran from the tomb,
Prayed with the others in that upper room,
Then felt your Spirit on Pentecost Day —
May we so gladly proclaim you today.
O God of Phoebe and ministers all,
May we be joyful in answering your call.
Give us the strength of your Spirit so near
That we may share in your ministry here.
