National Episcopal Church Women
We are Episcopal Church Women of all ages, ethnic origins and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold a variety of views. However, the common denominator of our members is love of God and the wish to do his work.

As the eyes, ears, hands, and heart of Christ in the world, we will persist in the work of healing, justice, and peace.

To live Christ’s ministry we:
  • Listen to voices of women worldwide;
  • Promote educational, spiritual, and social programs which minister to women and children;
  • Provide opportunities and tools to grow relationships with God and others through spirituality, prayer, and worship; and
  • Encourage the development of women’s leadership by example in stewardship, training, and education.

Three Triennial Meeting 2018 delegates from the Diocese of West Texas - Dana Sommers, Carol Folbe, and Catherine Lillibridge - offer this story of the MOCA ministry as a way of "sharing the word - every day, comunicamos, everywhere."

We make choices each day to act on things, but what happens if we put contemplation in front of the action? This is what we did when we had a hard topic - human trafficking - to act on, and why we want to share this MOCA model with you. We realized if we took little “sips” of contemplation, action and reflection we could stay energized without burning out. Action seems to present itself easily but we then wonder where the passion went that we had for this in the beginning?
