EPISCOPAL CHURCH WOMEN (ECW)

The ECW chapters are also hostesses for the Bishop’s annual visits to both churches and for the annual parish meeting.
Each of the ECW chapters has its own community outreach projects, and these active groups hope to accomplish and to give more each year.
The chapters have separate meeting schedules and generally meet September through May, though the St. George’s chapter has a group of craftswomen who meet weekly throughout the summer and early fall in preparation for the Christmas Fair The Episcopal Church Women are committed to supporting the programs and mission philosophy of the parish, contributing time, talent and treasure to a variety of undertakings. The ECW represents all women in the parish, although the membership of two established chapters – All Saints’ and St. George’s – carry out the bulk of the duties. Each of the chapters has a distinctive personality and purpose, providing something for everyone.

All Saints’ Chapter was initiated in the late 1950’s. Ladies of All Saints’ contribute greatly in supplying and preparing food for Lenten Luncheons, receptions for the Bishop and special visitors to our parish. Once a year we collect food items for Cape Henlopen Food Basket. We support our parish by donating gift cards to the church office to be used for needed families during the year. We assist our parish throughout the year as needed. We meet the second Monday in September, November, January and March. All are welcome to attend our meetings and join our ministry.

St. George’s Chapter meets on the second Monday of the month (except July) at 10 a.m. to plan coffee hours and focus on other events at St. George’s Chapel. The group meets on Thursdays 1:30 pm-3:30 pm to make crafts which they sell at their Christmas Fair the first Saturday in December at the Parish Hall.

When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook.
When love is the way, poverty will become history.
When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary.
When love is the way, we will lay down our swords and shields, down by the riverside, to study war no more.
- The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop &Primate of The Episcopal Church
