Vision and Mission


We envision the women of our organization to be vibrant, committed and faithful women of God, united in love, empowered by God's Holy Spirit to impact lives by exemplifying Christ as we lead others to Him and for the building up of God's Kingdom.

Our mission is to encourage women to become committed to their spiritual growth and development; to know and share the gospel to others; to become actively involved in mission and ministry; to participate fully in supporting the work of the Diocese.

Anglican Church Women



O Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace

Where hatred is, let me show love

Where injury is, pardon;

Where doubt is, faith;

Where despair is, hope;

Where darkness is, light;

Where sadness is, joy;

O Divine Master, grant me to seek

Not to be consoled, but to console;

Not to be loved, but to love.


For thus cometh the reward of love;

Only by giving do we receive;

Only by forgiving are we forgiven;

Only by dying are we born to eternal life.





Anglican Church Women



Take my life, and let it be

consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

Take my moments and my days;

let them flow in ceaseless praise.


Take my hands, and let them move

At the impulse of Thy love.

Take my feet, and let them be

Swift and beautiful for Thee.


Take my voice, and let me sing

Always, only, for my King;

Take my lips, and let them be

Filled with messages from Thee.


Take my silver and my gold;

Not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect, and use

Every power as Thou shalt choose.


Take my will and make it Thine

It shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart, it is

Thine own it shall be Thy royal throne.


Take my love; my Lord, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure-store

Take myself and I will be

Ever, only, all for Thee
