Daughters of the King
We are an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA)
and Roman Catholic churches.
By Margaret J. Franklin at
the Church of the Holy
Sepulcher in New York City
(now the Church
of the Resurrection).
Our Anglican tradition
oversight, recognizes that
Holy Scripture 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.
FOUNDED IN 1885
We vow to pray daily for the
spread of Christ’s Kingdom,
for God’s blessing on the work
of our Order, for the spiritual
growth of our parish.
We have undertaken many
projects in the Church and community.
WHAT WE DO
THE RULE OF LIFE
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.
