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.

the Church of the Holy

Sepulcher in New York City

(now the Church

of the Resurrection).

Our Anglican tradition

includes episcopal

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.

OUR MISSION

The mission of The Order is the extension

of Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism.
