Spotlight on Ministry — Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

The Nativity Display sponsored by the ECW was this past Sunday, December 11, in the parish hall. A wide variety of nativity displays from all parts of the world as well as well-loved family displays were featured.  This annual event is a favorite at St. Matthew’s.

About the ECW:

The purpose of the ECW is to assist the women of the Episcopal Church to carry on Christ’s work of
reconciliation in the world and to take their place as leaders in the life, governance and worship of the church.

ALL women of St. Matthew’s are invited to participate in this dynamic group.

ECW benefits monies from the bi-annual Cathedral Book store visit to St. Matthew’s. The Vera Bradley sales at St. Matthew’s is another activity of this self-supporting organization. ECW has sponsored education & clothing costs for Daysy Caceres, in ‘Our Little Roses” orphanage for the past 12 years. The ECW provides for the Episcopal Church by the United Thank Offering (UTO).

ECW is represented at the Diocesan Annual ECW meeting, ECW Retreat. Meetings include the Annual Chili Cook-off, Salad Social, ECW Retreat at Camp Mikell, Halloween Bingo, Christmas Gathering and Display of Nativities.

Watch the bulletin board for other upcoming ECW events. Contact the church office for further information.
