DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

THE ORDER OF THE DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

WHO ARE THE DOK?

Daughters of the King is an international order of women in the Episcopal church who take a vow to pray daily and to serve others. Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with God. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship and community of other women. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know and serve Jesus Christ and to help make Him known to  ourselves, each other, and others. We meet on the first Sunday of each month.  There  presently are 33 women in the DOK at St. Mark’s with 7 new members installed  in 2020. 

Our ministries have included the UTO boxes, calling members of St. Mark’s during the pandemic, sponsoring prayer vigils for 9/11 memorials and elections, helping with morning and evening prayer, facilitating groups at Sunday formation, sponsoring an enneagram retreat, sponsored a praying in color retreat, helped to host the diocese convention, sending cards to teachers, participated in a day of mourning for those who died of covid,  and gathering and delivering books for women in prison.  This Lent 2021 we are sponsoring Lent Madness.

Our Grace Chapter prays for every member of St. Mark’s daily as well as a list of people given to us for prayer.
