Anglican Churchwomen (ACW)

Women Saints from our Ordo Kalendar

What is ACW?

Anglican Church Women (ACW) is an organization throughout the Anglican Province of Christ the King. Each local ACW chapter helps support the mission of the Church, in its parish, through acts of Christian charity. Local chapters also support the diocesan and provincial ACW projects.

The ACW at St. Bartholomew’s

St. Bartholomew’s ACW is a parish guild for women. We support each other in prayer and Christian friendship, and we organize projects and events that further the work of our parish and of the broader Church locally and internationally. Working closely with the Rector, we:

  • form partnerships with local and international service organizations
  • host parish community events
  • help care for our parish building, and maintain the grounds,
  • care for members of our parish

ACW Projects and Events

Every year is different because current ACW members determine the goals and projects they will pursue. Here’s a sample of past ACW initiatives:

  • Collect non-perishable items and supplies for local food banks and schools
  • Raise funds for Guatemala Village Health medical mission trips
  • Support Matthew House ministry for families of incarcerated men
  • Sell Ordo Kalendars in support of St. Joseph of Arimathea Seminary
  • Easter baskets and Easter egg hunt for children
  • St. Bartholomew’s Day Picnic BBQ
  • Arrange flowers for the sanctuary, and pull weeds in the gardens

Monthly Meetings

The ACW meets on the first Sunday of the month after the Liturgy. We welcome you to join us!

About the Banner of Women Saints

These Saints—all recognized on the Anglican Ordo calendar—used their varied life circumstances to witness to the truth and hope found only in Jesus Christ. He was the sure foundation on which they built their lives.
