Daughters Of The King
The St. Teresa of Avila Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King is a spiritual, praying Order for women in the church. The mission of the Order is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom by prayer, service and evangelism. Each Daughter takes a lifetime vow to live by the Rule of the Order so that she can obtain a closer relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Because of our vow, we refer to ourselves as an Order, not an organization.
Our Chapter meets monthly and has provided several types of service to our parish, including kitchen detail, helping with the distribution of prayer quilts and Easter baskets, and hosting a service before Christmas for those who suffered a loss and find holidays difficult.
The motto of the Order is: 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.
