Daughters of the King, The Order of
President: Veronica Francis

Formed in 2000, the Holy Sacrament Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King presently consists of a number of members who are the prayer ministry of the church. The group is a "spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism."

The Vision Statement of the Order is "Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God’s love throughout the world."

The order at Holy Sacrament Church meets every third Sunday of each month for a brief general meeting and study which lasts between 1- 11/2 hours, and every Wednesday at 6:30 pm for an hour of prayer. When members of the group receive requests for prayer from church members, family and friends, they privately intercede with daily prayers.

 The Order engages in a scheduled Flower and Prayer Ministry:
- Altar flowers are rearranged into smaller arrangements to be given to the sick and housebound, or for anyone celebrating a special occasion.
- Healing Prayer Teams are available after the 10:15 a.m. service and occasionally after the 8:00 a.m., for persons who are in need of prayer.
 
The group also prepares and supplies the necklaces made of nails, which are blessed and distributed on Ash Wednesday, and worn by members throughout the Season of Lent. Members remove the nails from their necks during a worship service called "the Living Stations of the Cross" on Good Friday evening and nailed them in the cross. This serves as a reminder of the nails that were driven into the hands and feet of our Lord.

The emblem of the Order is in the form of a modified Greek fleury cross inscribed in Latin, “Magnanimiter Crucem Sustine,” the watchword of the Order, meaning “With heart, mind and spirit uphold and bear the cross.” At the base of the cross are the letters “FHS”, initials that stand for the Motto of the Order: “For His Sake.”
