Anglican Church Women (ACW)
The Anglican Church Women (ACW) of St. Mary’s is an autonomous organisation whose membership comprises all the women of the parish.
Our purpose “is to be a focus for Christian community among all Anglican Women, affirming their gifts and encouraging their ministries through worship, learning and service” (Diocese of Toronto-Anglican Church Women information Sheet).
This year our activities for fellowship have included an Appreciation Luncheon, a potluck dinner, and a speaker event promoting breast health. Our Annual Christmas Bazaar and Luncheon were our major fundraiser for the year. A corporate breakfast and Annual General Meeting rounds out the year with recognition for a job well done and disbursement of funds raised for various outreach organisations, as well as support for St. Mary’s.
