The Daughters of the King meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month in B-14 from 5:30 - 7:00 p. m.
Who We Are
The Daughters of the King is an Order founded in 1885 for laywomen who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, or churches in communion with it, or churches that are in the Historic Episcopate. Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and The Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself 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. A Daughter wears her cross as an outward and visible sign that she cannot live a day without Christ in her life. We see our Order as a community of nurturing women to whom parishioners can look for intercessory prayers in time of stress, illness, grief, or any other concerns. Prayers are offered for all clergy, for vestry and for staff of the parish and for the spiritual guidance and success of church functions.
St. Cecilia Chapter
St. Matthew’s chapter is known as St. Cecilia, the patron saint of Church Music. We find the Daughters of the King to be a "safe place" in a busy world where we can be together in fellowship, support each other, and pray together for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom here on earth. Prayer requests are maintained in confidence. To be placed on the Daughter’s prayer list, fill out a prayer card and drop it into our Prayer Box located in the foyer of the church or you can contact any member of the order. We can never forget that Prayer is the foundation from which our service grows.
"Prayer without works is empty words,
Service without Prayer is labor lost."
