Episcopal Church Women

Our Vision

A community of women supporting each other in Christ-centered ministries throughout the Diocese of Chicago.

Our Mission

We seek to support all women in our parishes without restriction by creating a greater connection between us through our faith and sisterhood with programs of education and service. We ask the Lord for guidance in translating our Christian belief into action.

Our newsletter, The Mirror, is both published and available online. If you are interested in receiving our newsletter, please contact membership@ecwchicago.org.

United Thank Offering

The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, individuals are invited to embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. UTO encourages people give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion through their annual granting program.

To learn more about how to participate in the United Thank Offering or to order materials to start the program in your congregation, please use these links:
