Each year the diocesan board invites nominations for its annual endorsed mission projects. These are the projects which we promote and for which we fundraise each year. We choose one diocesan, one national, and one world project from those nominated.
The Missions Committee will review all projects submitted and, after prayerful consideration, will submit a slate of projects to the bishop for approval. After his approval, these projects are then proposed to the membership at large for approval at the Diocesan ECW Convention.
For 2015, our Mission Projects were: the Campaign for Cange Emergency Fund (world), Washington National Cathedral Kneeler Resoration (national), and the Bishops’ Public Education Initiative (diocesan).
We invite you to use THIS FORM to submit your projects. The deadline is October 30, 2015. Projects selected and approved by the bishop will be posted on this blog no later than December 30, 2015, to give ample notice before Convention on January 30, 2016.
