The Daughters of the King is an international religious Order for women in the Episcopal Church with Chapters in the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Evangelical Lutheran Churches in America.
The Daughters of the King meet every second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Parish Hall. Their next meeting is Saturday, July 8. Prospective members are always welcome!
Members undertake a lifetime vow of a Rule of Life, incorporating The Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service:
+ To be Christ’s faithful servant in the extension of His Kingdom.
+ To regularly take part in the worship, study and work of the Church.
+ To render at all times aid to the clergy as deemed necessary for the spiritual up-building of the parish.
St. James the Apostle Chapter serves as the intercessory prayer fellowship for our church family and prays daily for the individuals in need of healing and guidance. Some of the Daughters of the King service projects include visitation of shut-ins, packing and delivery of Seafarers’ Christmas boxes, special parish wide prayer projects and sponsorship of an annual Quiet Day.
Members of the Order habitually wear a modified Greek Fleury cross as their “habit” and are dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and strengthening of the spiritual life of the parish.
