Ecclesiastical Needlework Committee

The Ecclesiastical Needlework Committee (ENC) is a group of Anglican Church Women who meet weekly to create liturgical textiles for local parishes. In 2013, the ENC celebrated its 100th anniversary.

The ENC meets on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., September through June, at the Diocesan Centre, 135 Adelaide St. E. (just east of Church Street) in Toronto.
