“Empowered by the Holy Spirit”
An order for women and girls who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it.
Membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches. The Order was founded in 1885 by Margaret J. Franklin at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in New York City (now the Church of the Resurrection).
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as daughters of the kings is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God’s love throughout the world.
Our Order recognizes that Holy Scripture contains all things necessary for salvation, acknowledges the gift of the Holy Spirit in Baptism, the real presence of our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, and worship according to The Book of Common Prayer.
Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and Service. Daughters pledge themselves to a life-long program of Prayer Service and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.
The Ascension chapter was started on November 5th 1984 and has been very active in the church. There are currently over sixty members.
A Jr. Daughters Order (Jr. DOK) has been in existence for many years. It thrives to nourish and position the young girls in the parish for a life of worship and service.
