Daughters of the King in Upper South Carolina
There are thirty-four chapters in the diocese; thirty-three are Episcopalian and one is Lutheran. Several Daughters-At-Large are Anglican or Roman Catholic. Most chapters meet once a month for communal prayers, study and service. The Diocesan Assembly meets twice a year, a retreat in the spring and a meeting in the fall. All interested women are welcome to attend assembly retreats and meetings to learn more about the order. Three or more women in a parish mission or diocesan institution may form a chapter. Read more about the order on the National Website.
Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others.
Who We Are
Junior Daughters of the King
Junior Daughters are young women and girls from seven to twenty-one years of age, who make a promise to pray daily and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. Membership is extended to all baptized girls, regardless of denomination. Junior Daughters meet in chapters of three or more girls, under the guidance of a senior Daughter who serves as Directress. Upon admission, Junior Daughters receive a silver Greek fleury cross with the initials FHS, For His Sake, as a symbol of their promise of daily prayer and service.
