Alice Driver Chapter of the Daughters of the King

Who We Are:

The Daughters of the King is a lay religious Order including women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches. Each Daughter has taken a lifetime vow to enter into a spiritual discipline of daily prayer and service. The emblem of the Order is the silver Greek cross which Daughters wear at all times as an outward and visible sign that we cannot live a day without Christ in our lives.

The cross is inscribed with the words “Magnanimiter Crucem Sustine,” a Latin phrase meaning “With heart, mind and spirit, uphold and bear the cross.” Also inscribed are the letters FHS, representing the motto of the Order, “For His Sake.”13466156_10154990824627222_4861790024025820173_n

Daughters of the King was organized in 1885. The Order of the Daughters of the King has celebrated over 125 years of prayer, service, and evangelism. We are represented in 15 countries worldwide and over 25,000 women and girls are members. 

Our chapter has 30+ active members. The only requirement for membership is that a woman be a communicant in good standing and serve a three-month training period.

The Alice Driver Chapter of the Daughters of the King meets once a month (currently on the 4th Saturday) either at the St Julian Hall or in someone’s home.  Our usual meeting time is 11:30 a.m.

The Motto of the Order:

For His Sake…

I am but one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What 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?
