Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

Who Are We?

We are 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 His work.

All women in the Episcopal Church throughout the United States are automatically members…

Who Are the St Francis Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

As in any Episcopal church, all women of the parish are automatically a member.

In addition, many of us are members of one or more of the Guilds, which are smaller groups who meet for social fellowship and also to support various outreach or charitable causes.
