Daughters of the King
Purpose and Mission
The Daughters of the King is a national organization for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, as well as the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Evangelical Lutheran churches. The Order was founded in 1885 by Margaret J. Franklin at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in New York City.
The mission of the Order is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service, and Evangelism.
Daughters of the King: Are You Called to Share Our Journey?
As Daughters of the King we are women striving to fulfill the promises of our Baptismal Covenant. We promise to pray, work, and give for the spread of Christ's Kingdom. Through membership in the Order of the Daughters of the King we are:
- Strengthened through prayer
- Helped to learn through discussion and spiritual study
- United and supported in community with other Daughters.
Prayer is the foundation and central focus of our Order. We exchange prayer requests in a regularly updated e-mail prayer list. At our meetings, we pray for those requests and for requests placed in the Christ Church prayer box by parish members and visitors. If you would like to learn more about Daughters of the King, please email Jane Gilchrist, president, or Betsy Powell.
