Daughters of Holy Cross

The Daughters of the Holy Cross (DHC) is Trinity’s Episcopal Church Women (ECW) ministry.  The mission is to “deepen the spiritual life of the women of the parish; to broaden their Christian outlook, and to provide channels through which they may assist in carrying on the Church’s program."  We offer our church, community and world our time, resources and a commitment as servants of Christ.

Who, exactly, is a Daughter of the Holy Cross? ALL baptized women of Trinity are members of The Daughters of the Holy Cross, and are welcome to join us in our mission.
