About The Order

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 but not in communion with it. Our membership currently includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.

Prayer, Service, and Evangelism

Reaffirming the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism. She receives support in this commitment from a worldwide community of like-minded women.

In solidarity with one another, all Daughters everywhere make the same promises upon their admission to The Order:

  • To obey the two Rules of The Order: the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service.

  • To offer at all times loyal aid to our clergy and parish to spread Christ’s kingdom.

  • To wear faithfully the cross of The Order.

  • To work for the purposes of The Order as God may give us the opportunity.

Our Mission

The Mission of The Order is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism.

Our Vision

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God's love throughout the world.

Are you called?

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. We are a group of Christian women who adopt a Rule of Life based on the promises of our Baptismal Covenant:

  • To continue in the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers.

  • To persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.

  • To proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.

  • To seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.

  • To strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.

 

We are women living a Rule of Prayer and Service to our neighbors. Parishioners can look to us for love and help in time of need or loneliness. We seek to walk with God as our guide and try to draw those with whom we come in contact into the church. We are women who work to spread Christ’s Kingdom here on earth. We can never forget that prayer is the foundation from which our service grows.
