All Women in the Episcopal Church are Episcopal Church Women
Flower Mart Donations Requested
Please join us for the Episcopal Church Women's popular baked goods booth at Flower Mart at the Washington National Cathedral on Friday and Saturday, May 3-4, 2019. Flower Mart has been a tradition since 1939. Here is more information about the festival:
Friday, May 3 | 10:00am-6:00pm
Saturday, May 4 | 10:00am-5:00pm
An irresistible array of festival foods, children’s rides, artisanal and boutique gifts and, of course, herbs and flowers, once again fills the nave and grounds of the Cathedral at this year’s Flower Mart. This year, the theme is "Pollinator Power," as we celebrate the power of bees and butterflies and their contributions to the Cathedral gardens. Come and enjoy the day with us!
We are asking for contributions of homemade baked goods from our Episcopal Church Women's groups in the Diocese. We are also looking for volunteers to work in our booth for a few hours on either Friday or Saturday. It is a fun way to be part of the festival and help raise funds for the maintenance of the beautiful Cathedral grounds.
Please contact our Flower Mart chairs: Meigan Chan, Karen Cassedy (301-675-9990)
or Rosamond Daniels (202-445-0054) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to make arrangements to donate baked goods or volunteer to work in our booth.
Thank you and we hope to see you there!
The Memorial Scholarship Fund Grant
due May 31, 2019
The Diocesan Board of the Episcopal Church Women invite lay and ordained women pursuing post graduate degrees in Christian ministry and social work to apply for the Memorial Scholarship Fund Grant. Women enrolled in the Diocesan Diaconate program are also eligible.
This fund was established in 1925 and continues to exist from donations received in honor of and to commemorate deceased women. Many parishioners are now beginning to think of MSF as a unique way of expressing one’s gratitude for the good life that God has granted.
Please share this with any person who may be interested in your parish. The application and the eligibility criteria may be downloaded here.
