Ingathering for the Master's Fund is June 4

Dear Sisters in Christ,
This is just a gentle reminder that the Ingathering for the Master's Fund is June 4.

A Prayer for the Master's Fund:  O heavenly Father, bless the prayers and the gifts we receive for the furtherance of Your kingdom. Give both the giver, and the receiver of the gift, wisdom and guidance to listen for Your will in their lives. By Your grace, empower and prepare Your servants for the work You give them to do. As they grow in the knowledge of You and Your Word, fill them with Your peace and love and joy and send them forth to meet the needs of a wanting world. May their work proclaim Your goodness, build Your kingdom, and be a blessing to all For His Sake. Amen.

Spring Retreat Registration Forms

We have another wonderful retreat planned for this spring, April 28-30, 2017 at Camp St. Christopher.  The Rev. Jean DeVaty, a former chaplain of our DOK SC Assembly, will be our speaker. Jean is the priest at St. James, Lake George, New York.  She is a gifted teacher and will lead us in further study on the theme, "Being a Child of God in the Kingdom”. Junior Daughters are a integral part of Spring Retreat and will have special teaching time with Mother Jean, too.  Mother Jean's blog can be found here.

We all enjoyed having a special tea during Spring Retreat last year. Another tea is planned for this retreat, and we will be honoring our Daughters at Large. We want all of our DALs to be with us!

Come and be a part of this weekend of prayer, study, worship, and fellowship with your sisters in Christ.  Please put this date on your calendar now!  You’ll want to register early and encourage other members of your chapter, DALs, and Junior Daughters to attend!

Thanksgiving Message

Dear sisters in Christ,

God has blessed our DOK SC Assembly during the past year through:


Each DOK, DAL, and Junior DOK

Dedicated Chapter Presidents and Junior Directresses

A wonderful Executive Committee

Active DALs  

New chapters 

New members joining Chapters 

Inspirational Quiet Days

Regional Meetings to share information and build friendships 

Jan Johnson as our speaker for Spring Retreat, 

Province IV and National Council's leadership and help

First International Friendship Trip to the Dominican Republic made by eight of our Junior Daughters

Powerful Fall Assembly with Sherry Schumann as our speaker, helpful workshops, and a very special Eucharist including a musical meditation.

This is just the beginning of a list!

We have all been blessed with the opportunity to grow as children of God and to support our parishes with prayer, service, and evangelism. Daughters are using questions asked about their crosses to start conversations with others about knowing Christ.

Members of the clergy have been helpful in taking time to support Senior and Junior Daughters of the King in their parishes and for spiritual guidance. Bishop Skilton lead our Friendship trip for Junior Daughters to the Dominican Republic and continues to serve as our Chaplain for Province IV and as International Chaplain. Our own Assembly Chaplain, Pastor Bonnie Mefferd, has supported us with her prayers and guidance, serving on the Executive Board, and supporting DALs with renewal of vows.    

Being a Daughter of the King is one of my greatest blessings.  As a Daughter I have a community of sisters to grow with in Christ each day. We need each other for encouragement when we're discouraged, for help when the load is heavy, for support when we need sisters who will take the time to listen, and most of all to stand together as we praise and worship our Lord.  

Please know that I thank God for each of you and appreciate your encouragement, help, support, and enthusiasm! I send my prayers for a wonderful Thanksgiving for each of you and your loved ones. 


Blessings for His sake,
