The Order of Daughters of the King is a religious lay order for women and girls in the Episcopal Church. It was founded in 1885. Its mission is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom especially among women and girls and the strengthening of the Church’s spiritual life. At St. James there are thirteen members in The Martha and Mary Chapter. Each wears a cross as a reminder to show Christ’s love to all people. Every “daughter” commits to daily prayer, service, and study.
We meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Each meeting consists of fellowship, study, and prayer. Our chapter is committed to assisting in providing meals and/or reception for funerals held at St. James.
There is training available if you feel you would like to become a member. There is always room for any woman who would like to further her faith life by becoming a Daughter of the King.
For more information, please contact the church office and leave a message for Elaine, chapter President.
