Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King®
an International Sisterhood of Women
After a period of Prayer, Study and Discernment, Daughters of the King take vows of Prayer and Service. These vows are the basis of our Rule of Life that provides a structure, a discipline which defines who we are and helps us to grow spiritually. Our crosses proclaim, in Latin, “With heart, mind and spirit, uphold and bear the Cross.’ We wear them daily to remind ourselves that we cannot live a day without Christ in our lives. We are ordinary women who work at being faithful followers of our Lord and King, Jesus Christ.
Our Springfield Chapter has members worshipping at both English and Spanish speaking services at the Cathedral, services at St. Peter’s, Springfield, and St. Mark’s, East Longmeadow. Our meetings are open to any woman. Meetings include prayer, meditation, Bible or book studies. Our monthly meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month at CCC or St. Peter’s. We welcome all who think they might be interested in merging “Mary and Martha’ in their lives. Retreats on the National, Provincial and Diocesan level are also available to meet with other DOK. We have a confidential prayer list, updated monthly and participate in several service projects.
