Supporting All Women in Their Christian Mission

Founded in 1891, the Episcopal Church Women support and connect all women in their Christian mission and ministries, sharing faith and fellowship. Each parish has an ECW chapter; these groups work together across the Diocese of Southwest Florida to share in their common mission of serving Christ. The ECW vision is for all women of the Diocese to become a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together as a peacemaking, healing part of the Episcopal Church.

Read about the ECW experience from Manasota Deanery Director, Nancy Monti.
