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 Order was established in 1885 under the leadership of Margaret Juliet Franklin in Manhattan, New York

at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (now the Church of the Resurrection).


It is a sisterhood which now spans the globe. We have approximately 20,000 Daughters worldwide.

DOK illuminates the path for women seeking spiritual enlightenment. Rooted in the essence of servitude and dedication, the Order carries forward a legacy of
unwavering commitment to church and community. 


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.


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.

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.
