Lay Religious Orders

dok_logo x355w294h

Daughters of the King are women and girls who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others.

Members of The Order of the Daughters of the King undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of Prayer, Service, and Evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.

At Trinity, the St. Anne’s Chapter is a group of women learning what it means to love God and to love one another. It is a place where it is safe to be vulnerable and authentic, where we can grow in spiritual strength and courage, knowing ourselves to be God’s beloved daughters. Because what we share in meetings is held in confidence, our meetings are not open. Special informational meetings are held periodically for women and girls who would like to find out more. Those interested are then invited to attend eight discernment classes before they make lifetime vows. At that point they may attend the regular monthly meeting as well.

For more information about the St. Anne’s Chapter of the Daughters of the King, please contact Verlene White, Chapter President.

The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is an international ministry of men within the Anglican Communion. The Brotherhood was incorporated by an Act of the U. S. Congress signed May 30, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt, with the sole object being the spread of Christ’s Kingdom among men.

The Brotherhood endeavors to accomplish this mission through the threefold disciplines of Prayer, Study and Service.

Discipline of Prayer
To pray daily for the spread of Christ’s kingdom, especially among men and youth, and for God’s blessings upon the labors of the Brotherhood.

Discipline of Study
To study the Holy Scriptures regularly and the teachings of the Church, to attain a better understanding of how to follow Christ and bring others into his kingdom.

Discipline of Service
To make continuous efforts, week by week, to bring others nearer to Christ through his Church.

The Brotherhood of St Andrew was re-installed at Trinity , after a fifty year break, on Pentecost (May 15, 2016) as an official chapter of the National Brotherhood. Over fifteen men are now listed as members.

We meet every month on the third Saturday. We spend time praying together at the altar. We then meet for fellowship and study.

The brothers are also doing service work with the Weld County Food Bank and hope to work with Habitat for Humanity in 2018.
