Joanna Chapter

The Daughters of the King (DOK) was founded in 1885 and was not only established throughout the United States, but chapters were started oversees in the early 1930s. Beckford Parish's Joanna Chapter had its beginning on July 27, 2008. We now have six members. You can recognize us by the special crosses we wear. The cross is a modified Greek Fluery Cross with the Latin inscription Magnanimiter Crucem Sustine meaing, "With heart , mind and spirit uphold and and bear the cross." At the base of the cross are the letters FHS that stand for the motto of the order, "For His Sake."

By following our Rule of Prayer and Service we give support and aid to our clergy and parish. We visit the sick, give to our local food banks, provide `grab and go' bags for transits, sponsor Quiet Days throughout the year and open Emmanuel Church to everyone on Wednesdays for silent prayer. Whenever we are needed, we assist the Rector with any visitations or ministering for special circumstances.

If you are a devout woman, we invite you to consider joining us.
