Our Mission

Welcome to the Episcopal Church Club of Philadelphia (ECCP)! Our mission is to encourage future clergy leaders of our diocese, to provide needed financial support for seminarians from the diocese, to be knowledgeable of the important issues of the diocese, and to support the initiatives and priorities of our Bishop, Daniel Gutierrez.

Founded in 1895, the Episcopal Church Club of Philadelphia is a social and service organization within the Diocese of Pennsylvania of the Episcopal Church. Membership in the Church Club is open to all lay members who are communicants of the Episcopal Church in this diocese, as well as others who share our interests and goals. We currently have about 270 members representing 60 parishes.

Our Aims and Purposes

  • Provide seminarian scholarship grants to qualified diocesan candidates.
  • Promote spiritual enrichment and Christian fellowship.
  • Exchange ideas for strengthening church operations.
  • Have an awareness of matters of religious, civic, and national concerns.
  • Support the initiatives and priorities of the Bishop.
  • Provide support, when asked, for institutions supported by the Diocese.
