Episcopal Church Women of St. Martin’s

Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Martin’s is the fellowship of all women of the Parish. ECW is organized to enable them to serve our Lord through Service, Worship, Education, Evangelism and Pastoral Care. The purpose of ECW is to empower women to live the life to which Christ called us by sharing His love through outreach, fellowship and spiritual growth.

ECW Prayer

Almighty God, Heavenly Father, source of all knowledge and truth, be present with each of us meeting together as the Women of the Episcopal Church. Grant us open minds, compassionate hearts, honest words and gentle ways. Give us the grace to know your will, the courage to accept it and the strength to accomplish it. May we not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Bless us with your peace today and all the days to come, and may we ever pray, “Thy will be done.” We live in your presence and pray in your Holy Name. Amen
