We are all Episcopal Church Women

As Episcopal Church Women (ECW) we continually strive to embody Christ's vision for the world by loving one another as he loves us. We are committed to taking leadership in identifying social injustices and pursuing action for change in response to our Baptismal Covenant. Our goal is to build an accepting atmosphere where every woman is welcomed and valued for her individual ministry.

The motto of the ECW of the Diocese of Washington is: Then Jesus answered her,
"Woman, great is your faith..." [Matthew 15:28]
