Daughters of the King

Members of Daughters of the King dedicate their lives to the spread of Christ’s kingdom and assist in strengthening the spiritual life of the parish. As members of this international religious order, daughters take a vow, pledging to a life-long program of prayer, service and personal evangelism, and commit to a Rule of Life. St. John’s DOK is the St. Martha Chapter, and members regularly serve the church in a variety of ways.

One of the primary ways they serve is through prayer; Daughters pray daily, maintaining an intercessory prayer list. Each week they also deliver altar flowers to nursing care centers and to homebound parishioners, and regularly offer care in bereavement, including coordinating receptions following funerals.
