Episcopal Church Women: All Episcopal women are members of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW). ECW holds the Christmas Emporium, several bake sales, and an annual spring tea called the Literary Tea. Proceeds are used not only for church ministries, but also for outreach ministries beyond St. Gregory’s.
Daughters of the King: Daughters of the King is an international religious order for women of the Episcopal churches, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today membership includes women in Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches. They are one of the fastest growing ministries in the Episcopal Church. The mission of the order is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through prayer, service, and evangelism. A Daughter pledges herself to a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service to strengthen her spiritual life and that of her parish. St. Gregory’s is blessed to have the St. Brigid of Kildare Chapter of the Daughters of the King. Meetings are held monthly on the second Saturday of each month in Harris Hall. All women are welcome to join in this special ministry of prayer and service. There is a bonding of Daughters all over the world, who are instantly recognized by the distinctive cross worn daily by each Daughter. Prayer requests given to the church are forwarded as they come in to each Daughter and daily prayers are offered for each request. The Daughters make an earnest effort to further Christ’s work by participating in the various ministries at St Gregory’s. Contact Marilyn Athey at email@example.com.
Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study: The group provides women an opportunity to study Holy Scripture and other spiritual works in a Christ-centered, friendship-oriented gathering. Although the group mainly consists of women from St. Gregory’s, visitors or members of the community are always welcome to join. In addition to Holy Scripture, the group uses books, study guides or video series by noted Christian authors and theologians. The meeting format is significantly oriented toward open discussion rather than lectures. All are welcome to give input and share experiences. Prayer time at the beginning and end of each gathering is a significant feature. This group enthusiastically welcomes newcomers!
