OUR NEXT GATHERING
Thursday, January 25, 4:30 - 6:15pm

On Thursday, January 25, we will hear from avid reader Jo Geddes about some of her favorite reads and recommendations from 2023. This gathering is open to everyone at the Cathedral and in the community. We hope you will come (and bring a friend!) for great fellowship and fantastic conversation. 

All women in the Cathedral are considered members of ECW (Episcopal Church Women) and our gatherings are open to ALL, women and men alike. We gather to grow in friendship, knowledge, spirituality, and service. It is ECW's goal to empower everyone to carry out Christ's work in the world. We want you to know that you are always warmly welcomed to join us as we journey together. 

The Collect of the Episcopal Church Women
Almighty God, we pray that you will bless our work in mission and ministry in the world. We give thanks for the gifts of joy and wonder to be found in your works. Make us so thankful for the power of Your love, given through Your Son, Jesus, that we may pray, labor, and give liberally to make known that love throughout the world.

The Power of Generosity

Donate

Support the Mission of ECW

There is much to do within the walls of Christ Church, within our community, our state, and our nation. Each monthly meeting will feature a community partner who will educate us on his or her work and mission as well as needs within their organizations. We will leave the meetings better educated and more aware. In turn, we will take that education and spread awareness to our fellow CCC members, our families, our neighbors and our friends. We have completed numerous special projects over the years, and have more work to do!
