About Province VIII DOK

An Invitation from Province VIII President Sara Lee Macdonald

Dear Sisters in Province VIII

It is my pleasure to invite all Daughters of the King in Province VIII to attend the Provincial Retreat, “Love Divine; All Loves Excelling”, 13-15 February 2015, at the beautiful Serra Retreat Center in Malibu, California. All Daughters resident in the Province have seat, voice and vote at the business meeting Friday evening, where we will elect our Province VIII Board for the 2015-2018 Triennial term. The Rev. Mary C. Earl, author and retreat leader, will open the retreat with a keynote talk following the short business meeting. 

We will be joined by the Rt. Rev. Diane Jardine Bruce, Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles and Province VIII DOK Chaplain, as well as members of the National Council.  Registration is limited, make your plans and register early. Click here for information and online registration form. I look forward to hearing about your personal journey with DOK and meeting you in person.

Love and blessings,
For His Sake,

Sara Lee Macdonald

Province VIII is known as the “Province of the Pacific.” It incorporates all the states touching the Pacific Ocean, plus the states that touch those states, and therefore includes:

  • California
  • Oregon
  • Washington
  • Alaska
  • Hawaii
  • Arizona
  • Nevada
  • Utah
  • Idaho

Province VIII also includes Navajoland and Taiwan.  Daughters of the King  may assemble as a diocese when there are a minimum of three chapters in good standing established, the diocesan bishop is supportive of the assembly, and diocesan officers are elected from the membership.
