Every woman of St. Michael’s Parish is a member of the Episcopal Church Women, and our ECW is one of the largest in the diocese. About 60 women are actively involved in a guild, the ECW Board and The Little Thrift Shop. The elected 14-member ECW Board plans luncheon meetings and arranges programs, often featuring speakers representing many of the charities they support. Twice a year we enjoy day trips to interesting cultural attractions in the Detroit metropolitan area. Every 18 months The Little Thrift Shop Fashion Show and Luncheon showcases clothing from The Little Thrift Shop.
The guilds meet monthly, September through June, for fellowship, study and outreach projects. St. Teresa’s meets on the fourth Monday evenings, and St. Elizabeth’s Guild meets on the fourth Tuesday mornings. The ECW gives $200 per year to each guild for outreach, which currently provides support to local ministries.
