First Junior Daughters of the King in the Diocese of Albany

by Amelia Brown

Junior Daughters of the King is a group of girls who dedicate their lives to Christ by prayer and service. It is all over America and has spread to Nigeria, Honduras, Brazil, Haiti, and Uganda as well. To be a Jr. Daughter of the King has been a great experience for me and the rest of the chapter.

In the beginning of September, Deacon Peggy Theodore started a chapter of Jr. Daughters of the King at Trinity Church in Potsdam, New York. Since then we have done various projects. We helped at a fundraiser tea for the local Christian outreach center, Helping Hands. We made posters telling church members what food to bring to Helping Hands. Visiting the Nursing Home was another service project we enjoyed. Some of us have been helping our church out as acolytes, singing in the choir, and helping with coffee hour. We enjoy helping out anywhere we can. All of these projects have helped improve our faith and shown it to others.

At home many of us have made an altar at which we pray daily. We pray often, for that is one of the things we promised to do when we became Jr. Daughters of the King. Praying together is always part of our meetings. This group has helped bring all of us closer to Christ. We also had a tea for one of the members of our church, Betty Rothermel, asking her about her faith and what it was like growing up in Trinity Church.

In December we started to go through our training period after deciding that we truly wanted to be Jr. Daughters of the King. Finally on March 5, we became official Jr. Daughters of the order, dedicating our lives to Christ by our promise of prayer and service. We call ourselves the Jr. Praising, Serving, Loving, and Laughing (P.S.L.L.) Girls of the Holy Trinity because serve, we praise God, we love the Lord, our God, and we love to laugh! At the moment we are constructing a banner for ourselves.

"..we praise God,
we love the Lord,
our God, and we
love to laugh!"

"We pray often, for that is one of the things we promised to do when we became Junior Daughters of the King."
