Daughters of the King

Daughters of the King is an Order for women of the Episcopal Church. It was first organized in 1885. Every Daughter pledges herself to a lifelong program of prayer, service, and personal evangelism, dedicated to the extension of Christ’s kingdom and to the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.

We are lay and ordained, young and old, rich and poor, executives and housewives, generous and strong… in short, ordinary women enabled by God’s grace to do His work.

Chapters are organized within parishes, missions, and institutions with the consent of the priest, chaplain, or bishop. In 2014, the Cathedral’s newly formed Queen Emma Chapter worked with the DOK Diocesan Assembly to find our place within the Assembly. Learn more about the national DOK organization here and the Diocesan Assembly here.

You are invited to join the Queen Emma Chapter of The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) We meet on the 1st Sunday of each month following the 10:30 AM service.

Our order is based on a RULE OF LIFE. A rule of life is a pattern of activities to embody and focus on our relationship with God. The rule is a covenant between God and you. Observing a rule gives a high priority to the religious dimension in our life. Individuals are quiet, pray, study, worship and take action for inner strength. Every month we gather a list of concerns to use for a daily prayer. This helps us draw closer to Christ daily.

The Queen Emma Chapter has participated in many local events and supplied supporting services to events such as the 2019 Renewal Conference at Blaisdell Center with Presiding Bishop Curry and Paulie Jennings’s memorial service.
