All Women in the Episcopal Church are Episcopal Church Women
The Bishop John Bryson Chane Scholarship for Social Justice
It is with great pleasure and excitement that the ECW Board announces the 2019 recipients of The Bishop John Bryson Chane Scholarship for Social Justice. This scholarship was established in 2011 by the ECW Board to honor and recognize Bishop Chane's commitment to social justice. Grants are awarded yearly to graduating seniors in the Diocese of Washington who have an interest in social justice. Please join us in congratulating:
Paula L. Clarke, attending Howard University (from St. Michael and All Angels, Adelphi)
Caleb H. Collins, attending Clemson University (from St. Philip’s, Laurel)
Derek J. Ohringer, attending the University of Maryland, College Park (from St. Philip’s, Laurel)
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.
As Episcopal Church Women (ECW) we continually strive to embody Christ's vision for the world by loving one another as he loves us. We are committed to taking leadership in identifying social injustices and pursuing action for change in response to our Baptismal Covenant.
Our mission is to build an accepting atmosphere where every woman is welcomed and valued for her individual ministry.
The motto of the ECW of the Diocese of Washington is:
Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith..." [Matthew 15:28]
