Daughters of the King (DOK)

The Order of the Daughters of the King

What is the Order of the Daughters of the King?

A Religious Order for women in the Episcopal Church, of churches in communion with it, or in churches who are in the Historic Episcopate.

Who are the Daughters of the King?

A group of Christian women who undertake to live by a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service.

What is the purpose of the Order?

Evangelism.  Through a disciplined life of prayer and service, Daughters endeavor to encourage an ever-growing, deepening relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

How does this Order differ from other groups?

Daughters live by a Rule of Life, a discipline that pervades all of life — home, family, church and beyond.  By living under a common Rule, Daughters are aware of growing with other Christian women toward Christ.

Will becoming a member of the Order help deepen a commitment to Christ?

The Order can help by directing the way to a stable relationship to our Lord Jesus Christ by prayer, study and meditation.

Why do Daughters wear the cross?

The silver Greek cross is a silent proclamation that members’ lives are committed to manifesting Christ’s love and that they cannot live a day without Christ in their lives.

What do Daughters do?

Daughters are not called upon to do, but to be.  Being a Daughter is a “state of mind.”
