We would like to welcome you to our Diocese of Ontario, Anglican Church Women webpage. Today, every woman in every parish in the Anglican Church is considered to be an Anglican Church Woman. Our A.C.W.s are found in many parishes, small and large across the Diocese. They provide strong support to their parishes as well as outreach to their communities.
The first Diocesan Women’s Auxiliary annual meeting was held in the Diocese of Ontario at St. George’s Cathedral, in Kingston on June 8 1887. The group was imbued with missionary zeal. Even in those early years, the Women’s Auxiliary had a wide vision and boundless interest in missionary work – both in Canada and around the world. In 1966, the Women’s Auxiliary was amalgamated with the other Women’s ministries and became the Anglican Church Women(ACW).
