Welcome to our 2018 President, Trish Johnston

Patricia “Trish” Johnston will lead the Board for the next three years, 2018 thru 2020.  Her Texas home since 2001 is The Church of the Good Shepherd, Friendswood.  Trish has been an active ECW member at Good Shepherd, holding the positions of President and Treasurer as well as being involved in many other on-campus ministries.  She currently serves on the Finance Committee and is head of the Counter Ministry.  Her passion for women's ministries included the formation of a Mug Sisters program that encourages prayer for one another and fellowship. Trish and her husband, Troy, were past chairs of Good Shepherd's annual fall fundraiser.  She has held two other Diocesan Board positions in the past; the funds coordinator for the ECW Endowment Fund and the Bishop Kinsolving Memorial Fund, and the Galveston/Southwest Convocational Coordinator.  Trish's goal as ECW Board President is to continue to foster new and innovative ideas to help empower women to be the hands and feet of Christ and do as the ECW National’s Triennial motto says: GO ECW! Share the Word: Everyday, Comunicamos, everyWhere.

ECW's Prayer

Almighty God, Heavenly Father, source of all knowledge and truth, be present with each of us meeting together as the Women of the Episcopal Church. Grant us open minds, compassionate hearts, honest words and gentle ways. Give us the grace to know your will, the courage to accept it and the strength to accomplish it. May we not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Bless us with your peace today and all the days to come, and may we ever pray, "Thy will be done". We live in your presence and pray in your Holy Name. Amen
