What is Involved in the Rule of Service?

Printer-friendly versionThe Rule of Service is the application of one's baptismal vow, reafffirmed by confirmation to be Christ's faithful servant in the extension of His Kingdom.   There are many ways for a Chaper or an indiviudal Daughter to serve. Some possibilities are:   Bringing support and conmfort to the sick through prayer and visitation, to those who come to our attention through the Daughters of the King, or our clergy. We are especially called to support those who find themselves away from home and without local support in a crises situation. The Balm of Gilead is such a ministry.   Making lap quilts and coverings for hospital stays.   Taking altar flowers to the sick, lonely shut-ins, and/or those in grief.   Making sleeping bags for the homeless.   Feeding of the hungry on a regular basis (weekly, monthly, etc.)   Finding food and shelter for those in need, especially in winter.   Making and distributing rosaries or prayer beads.   Most chapter ort diocesan projects start with one person who said, "I wish we could . . ." and who then found one more person who liked the idea, then found one more, and one more . . .   Does your Priest have a wish list?
