Daughters of the King

The Daughters are an Order of Women of the Episcopal Church with chapters in Roman Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran Churches of America.

Every Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service, and personal evangelism, dedicated to the extension of Christ’s kingdom and to the strengthening of the spiritual life in her parish. A chapter is organized within a parish with the consent of the priest or bishop. After a three-month training period, members take a vow of service and prayer.

The emblem of our order is a silver cross, which members wear at all times. The Latin words inscribed on the crosses translate, “With lofty heart, mind, and spirit uphold the Cross" The initials, FHS at the base of the cross remind us that our prayers, service and evangelism are done “For His Sake”
