The Episcopal Church Women is a church-wide organization with the continued goal of 100% participation from the women of our parish in at least one or more areas. 

If you are currently on a ministry team, we will assume that you wish to remain in that position. If we do not hear to the contrary, we will keep you in your current position.

Annual Report
2012-2013

​What great work the Christ Church Cathedral ECW did over the past year! The predominant goal for our church- wide organization was 100% participation from the parish in at least one or more ministries. With opportunities suitable for a wide range of interests, abilities and time limitations, more than 125 parishioners participated in a number of ministries. And while historically a women’s organization, we encouraged participation from our male parishioners as well, with a great response!

Goals for the year included creating additional hospitality teams, renewing pastoral care
efforts, new outreach areas and a continued commitment to support the United Thank Offering (UTO). Highlights included the Flower Guild’s Fall Flower Show, the fall Diaconate Ordination, robust Advent and Lenten Music and luncheon series, the spring Cathedral Celebration, Hot Dog lunch for 150 honoring our high school graduates, and planning a new Pictorial Directory. 

The flower show, featuring local designer Ron Barrett, chaired by Robbie Lynne Irvine, with Elizabeth Harrison leading the kitchen team, was a terrific event with more than 80 guests. Proceeds went to various Flower Guild projects and to UTO. The clergy challenged the entire parish with a dynamic and forward - thinking plan for Pastoral Care, complete with interesting opportunities for our members to support one another as our parish continues to grow. Over the summer, groundwork is being done for a roll -out of this
great project in the fall

Over the course of six weeks, more than 80 volunteers served over 460 lunches during one of the ECW’s most time - honored traditions, our Music and Luncheon series. The children at the Lillian Vallely School received the beautiful handwork of several parishioners, one of the new outreach projects utilizing the diverse interests of our members. The many enthusiastic hands of our dedicated volunteers made it quite a year. How grateful we were to be a part of it all!

Faithfully,
Lissa E. Watkins
