Episcopal Church Women
Sts. Mary and Martha Guild is a vibrant chapter of the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) at Aquia Episcopal Church. Our ministry meets the first, third and fifth Thursday of each month most of the year, and then every Thursday from July until the Fall Fest in October in the Parish Hall.
Our meetings begin with Morning Prayer at 9:30 led by a member of our clergy. Morning Prayer is followed by a simple book study and discussion.
After the study, we work on craft together. These creations are sold in the craft room at our annual Fall Fest the first Saturday in October (our biggest service project of the year) and from the ECW Advent table before Christmas.
The guild also does several other service projects during the year including cooking the meat for the youth group’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and visiting an assisted-living home twice a year. Most importantly, we are Sisters-in-Christ who pray together and enjoy Christ-centered fellowship. We welcome all the ladies of the parish and their friends to join us.
