The Order of the Daughters of the King is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate (Anglican Views), but not in communion with it. Our Anglican tradition contains all things necessary for salvation, acknowledges the gift of the Holy Spirit in Baptism, the real presence of our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, and worship according to The Book of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church.
Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating The Rule of Prayer and The Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ's Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.
The mission of The Order is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through prayer, service and evangelism.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as members of The Order is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God's love throughout the world.
The Order of the Daughters of the King is organized as a religious order, although we do not live in an enclosed community. Each Daughter takes a lifetime vow to live by the Rule of the Order. Our Rule of Life requires a spiritual discipline of daily prayer, service and evangelism. Because of our vow, we refer to ourselves as an order, not an organization.
Are you called to be a Daughter of the King? No special spiritual attributes are needed to become a Daughter of the King - only a sincere desire to draw nearer to God, and to help others do the same.
A six-week training program is offered periodically. Brochures for Daughters of the King are available in the Library on the table. If you would like more information, contact Connie Bye, President phone 817-412-1544 or Carolyn Davis, Vice President, phone 817-269-9053.
The Daughters of the King facilitated a workshop/quiet day for the women of St. Luke's. The day consisted of topics presented, discussion and a time for meditation and reflection.
