Daughters of the King

The Order of the Daughters of the King at Epiphany is a spiritual sisterhood of prayer, service, and evangelism. We meet in the parish hall at Episcopal Church of the Epiphany each Sunday at 12:15 pm. We are not a “club” or even an organization; we are followers of Christ who have taken or will take life-long vows to follow the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. The inscription on the cross we wear reads “Magnanimeter Crucem Sustine.” Broadly translated, this means “with heart, mind and spirit uphold and bear the cross.”

Those participating in Daughters of the King at Epiphany are Amanda Borden, Janet Bray, Ann Easley, Cathy Jones, Jean Kerr, Pam VanEtten, Betty Weldon, and Laura Williams.

The requirements for membership in The Order are that a woman be a communicant in the Episcopal Church, be willing to participate in the preparation period, and vow to accept the Rule of Life. Each Daughter designs her personal Rule of Life during the preparation period.

Motto of the Order of the Daughters of the King:

For His Sake . . . I am but one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
Whit I can do, I ought to do.
What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do?

Prayer of the Order:

O eternal Father, you have sent us your Son to teach us the things pertaining to your heavenly Kingdom; give your blessing to our Order wherever it may be throughout the world. Grant that we, your Daughters, ever may discern your truth and bear the cross through the battles of our earthly life.

Give us strength to overcome temptation and the grace to work to spread your Kingdom and to gather your scattered sheep within your fold. Pour out upon us the sevenfold gift of the Holy Spirit that we may always remember it is your work we are called to do, that all we think, do or say may be pleasing in your sight. We ask it all For His Sake, our King and savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
