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. ((Excerpted from the National DOK Website). Members wear a Daughter’s cross at all times to show that “we cannot live daily without Christ in our lives."
St. Mary’s Chapter of the DOK was chartered in March, 2003 with the support of our priest Fr. Peter Conaty and the Daughters of the King staff for the Diocese of Texas. We began with three Daughters at Large sharing their life’s experience as Daughters and each year we offer discernment classes to any woman interested in knowing more about Daughters and an opportunity to explore if being a Daughter is what they are called to do.
Daughters' meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month. There is a short business meeting, prayer requests, and a spiritual lesson at each meeting. Our chapter annually contributes to the National Funds of the Order as well as local outreach. The Order of DOK is not a fund raising organization and only derives funds from member donations.
If you are interested in learning more about the Order of Daughters of the King or wish to join, please feel free to speak to or email our rector and you will be contacted by the current president.
