The Episcopal Church Women of Trinity Church provides opportunities for fun, fellowship and service to all women of the parish and the greater community.
Annually, the group conducts a school supplies drive and a winter outerwear drive, both for Watertown Urban Mission, and hosts a September luncheon for those 80 and older in our parish. They also hold a spring rummage sale and a holiday bazaar, raising funds that are distributed to local, regional and worldwide organizations on behalf of the entire parish. Partnering with the IHC “Knit In” project, the Trinity ECW has made crib blankets for Chinese orphanages and hats and sweater sets for Syrian children living on refugee camps. Pillowcases (100) have been made for the opening of a girls school in Africa and financial support given to The Women of Grace projects in Malawi. Hundreds of dresses have been sewn and donated to the “Dress a Girl Around the World” project.
The ECW Yarn Ministry and Coffee Klatch knits community together through yarns told and joined. This ministry began as the Prayer Shawl Ministry, creating prayer shawls to be delivered to those experiencing challenging life situations or celebrating happy occasions.
The ministry’s focus quickly widened to include not only prayer shawls, but lap robes; helmet liners for soldiers at Fort Drum; chemotherapy caps for North Country Oncology; baby hats for the Maternity Place at Samaritan Medical Center, pocket prayer clothes and fleece blankets for the Victims Assistance Center of Jefferson County. Lap robes, prayer shawls, and red, white, and blue blankets (for veterans) have been made and donated to Watertown’s residential Hospice facility.
ECW Yarn Ministry and Coffee Klatch meets in the Parish Hall from 10 a.m. to noon every Tuesday (except holidays or when Watertown schools are canceled because of inclement weather). Whether you knit, crochet, sew or not, the group welcomes all women for this time of fellowship.
