Episcopal Church Women
All women in the Diocese of Oklahoma are members of the diocesan Episcopal Church
Women (ECW), whether or not there is an organized ECW group in their congregation.
Our mission is to be Sisters in Christ; to be every Episcopal woman whether lay or
ordained; and to be committed to prayer, worship, listening, leadership, study, service,
giving, and fellowship. Our vision is to empower women to fulfill their ministries.
The ECW sponsors several events throughout the year. These include the Women’s
Fall Retreat, Women’s Winter Retreat, and the Annual Conference and Bishop's Day.
We are also currently working to re-establish regional meetings which will bring women
together for a day of fellowship, networking and fun!
Additionally, every three years, the ECW of the Diocese of Oklahoma elects four
women to represent us at the Triennial Gathering, which meets in conjunction with
We, as Episcopal Church Women, can make a difference in the life and ministry of our
congregations, our communities, our diocese, and the world. We lovingly support our
local diocesan activities through giving (including our annual Ministry grants) and
We also support the wider church through the United Thank Offering (UTO) and the
Church Periodical Club (CPC). UTO invites us to embrace and deepen a personal daily
spiritual discipline of gratitude by noticing, giving thanks to God, and making an offering
for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings and
to distribute all which is collected to support innovative mission and ministry. CPC
provides free written materials to people all over the world who need and request them
and who have no other source for obtaining them, especially books for our seminarians.
We hope you will contact us to learn more, and join us at one of our upcoming events!
