Episcopal Church Women (ECW): A ministry of and for women. They are called and empowered by grace to serve our Lord in prayer, action, study and fellowship. As women members of the Episcopal Church, all women in every congregation in the diocese are members of the ECW and are invited to be active participants in the organization’s ministry. At Saint Christopher’s, our ECW is made up of a group of sisters whose activities include coordinating weekly coffee hours, spring and fall rummage sales and fundraisers for special projects around the church. The ECW supports the church’s other ministries, as members of the altar guild, the flower guild, music ministry, outreach ministry, seniors’ ministry, youth ministry, Eucharistic ministers, lectors, oblationers, ushers, tellers and vestry ministries.
Meetings are held monthly, on the third Sunday of the month, following the 10:00 am service. A break from duties is usually taken during July and August of each year.
The ECW is headed up by a committee of officers, four of which include the President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Elections are held every two years.
