If you are interested in walking this journey with us, we would love to welcome you as a part of our chapter. Please contact Gail Reid for information.
It was on January 26, 2014 that we became a new chapter, Daughters of St. Michael’s. We began with four daughters transferring from other chapters and three more women joining Daughters of the King (DOK) at St. Michael’s. It was on that day that Jackie Eckersley, who was President of the Texas DOK, instituted our new chapter of seven members, with our Rectors’ blessing. We couldn’t have been happier than that day. We meet once a month in the cry room (4th Monday at 6:15 pm).
Since then, we have assisted at funerals and with the flowers, as well as praying daily. We held our first retreat; Deacon Robert Chambers taught us about Evangelism and what it means in the world today, using the Samaritan woman at the well as a Biblical starting point. Also, some of us attended the DOK fall assembly at Camp Allen. Our prayer and our service as Daughters of St. Michael’s are very important to us all.
St. Michael’s Daughters
Mary: Walking forward in faith and commitment with a group of dedicated women, yet having room within that walk for individuality of practice and expression is a joy I find within Daughters of the King.
Bunny: I investigated joining DOK over thirty years ago; however, the chapter never materialized. I was delighted to be able to join in Honduras; I now appreciate the opportunity to serve at St. Michael’s.
Kathy: I have known many DOKs over the years, and have been impressed and humbled by their spirituality, selflessness and commitment to prayer, which is why I joined. The DOKs of St. Michael’s are no different. It is an honor to belong to this wonderful group of women, and a blessing upon St. Michael’s to be a sponsor.
Gail: As Anglican tradition rests on scripture, reason, and tradition; the three-fold mission of the Daughters is prayer, service and evangelism. I continue my journey to meet these goals. DOK has helped me to establish a Rule of Life and Prayer as I inch my way closer.
Karen: “Renewing our commitment of service to God, St. Michael’s and to each other every month, as well as the time spent in the Sanctuary as we conclude our meetings is very meaningful to me.”
Zoe: I feel it a privilege to be a Daughter of a King. The things we are asked to do as Daughters, we are all called to do. However, I feel a greater accountability through the Daughters of the King, to pray, serve and shine Christ’s light. And I get to do this with my fellow Daughters; my sisters
Kim: Walking with St. Michael’s (SMEC) and the Daughters of SMEC, has been one of the best privileges that Christ has shown me. It has been so enriching, just think I could have missed it.
