On Sunday, Feb.3, , Fr. Loren Fox, rector of Our Savior, Palm Bay, received the charter for the institution of the St. Seraphina chapter of the Junior Daughters of the King, presented by Krisita Jackson. Five girls at the Church of Our Savior -- Caitlin Streck, Paulina Klein, Jahshauna White, Brittaney MacDonald and Melody Weller -- were admitted to the chapter. Mrs. Gail Naidu and Mrs. Hyacinth Clunie are Directresses of the chapter.
Junior Daughters of the Order are young women and girls from 7 to 21 years of age. Junior Daughters are encouraged to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through personal and group prayer and Bible study. The first chapter was formed in the Diocese of Washington in 1896. Part of their service was to look up absentees of the Sunday school, look after the girls of their own age, and to visit the sick, the aged and afflicted and to read to them.
Senior chapters of The Order of the Daughters of the King support Junior Daughters by offering guidance and support and working together on joint projects from time to time. Annually, the Order celebrates an in-gathering for the Alpha Fund which is used to develop and support the Junior Daughters ministry.
Other Jr. Daughters chapters include: The Martha "Pete" Wesley chapter at St. David's, Lakeland; Mary's Little Angels chapter at St. Mary of the Angels, Orlando; Daughters of Incarnation chapter, Incarnation, Oviedo; Jr. Princess chapter, St. David, Cocoa Beach; Angelic Juniors chapter, St. Mary's, Belleview. A new Junior Daughters chapter will be instituted at St. Richard's in Winter Park on Sunday, April 7.
