Daughters of the King
About Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King® (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.
DOK at St. Michael’s
St. Michael’s DOK chapter was started in 2008, and meets in the library after the service on the fourth Sunday of each month. The format of the meetings is not rigid. It is opened with reciting the motto, followed by a prayer list update. Plans are made for current projects and usually lasts about one hour.
Our projects have included setting up a prayer request box in the church narthex; making and distributing Welcome Bags to visitors; monthly cleaning of the nursery toys (each member takes one month/year); organizing Kitchen Angels; hosting coffee hour; sponsoring Quiet Days; Centering Prayer Seminar; and Midweek Meditations. We are available to assist the Rector, as needed, for prayer request and visitation. Currently, plans are in progress for a Mediation Walk and for helping with food for the staff of the Foothills Day Camp.
Hopefully, this gives you an idea of what we are about. As members of the St. Catherine of Alexandria we invite and welcome anyone who would like to be a part of this ministry.
DOK was founded in 1885 for Episcopal women to encourage a discipline of Christian ideals of prayer, study and action; to establish a regular time for prayer, study and meditation; and to worship, share and serve our parish as best as we can as individuals and as a community. Dues are $50, sent to the National Office, and include a pin.
