The Episcopal Church Women is an international organization throughout the Episcopal Church. Centered in congregations, members work to do Christ’s ministry in the world focused on peacemaking and healing.
About the ECW
We are Episcopal Church Women of all ages, ethnic origins, and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold a variety of views. However, the common denominator of our members is love of God and the wish to do God’s work.

ECW Outreach Survey
In 2016, longtime ECW President Char Camfield coordinated a survey of outreach programs throughout the diocese. Char and the ECW felt it was important to acknowledge the contributions of parishes to their communities, promote the sharing of resources and ideas, and begin to develop relationships across parish, diocese, and denomination. The results of that survey were the beginning seeds of the storytelling on our diocesan page of the Episcopal Asset Map. Discover the ministries in our diocese and update your congregation’s information using our Asset Map directory page.
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.
