History

The Order was introduced to Germany in 2004 by American women living in Heidelberg and a chapter of six members was instituted on November 21st. Unfortunately, due to military base and chapel closings, the chapter was disbanded in 2012.

The Revival of The Order in Germany!

A group of four women at St. Boniface, Augsburg, Germany, had completed the study and were ready to be admitted. It was unlikely that Daughters from the United States would be able to join them for the service there, but their Vicar, the Rev. Dennis Krumlauf, and his wife, Jane, were in Orlando in January.  They asked that the new chapter institution be held at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke, Orlando, so the admission service could be held upon their return to Germany in February.

 

The charter and crosses were presented to Rev. Krumlauf at the Cathedral on Sunday, January 13, 2013 by Rosemarie Valentine, Regional Coordinator in Europe, and Krisita Jackson, President of the Diocesan Assembly of Central Florida.  Several Daughters from Central Florida chapters were present to support the Krumlaufs.

 

After returning to Germany, the Krumlaufs took the crosses to a service on January 27, where they were blessed by the Rt. Rev. Pierre Whalon, Bishop of the Convocation of American Churches in Europe. And then, at last, on February 3, 2013, the crosses and charter were presented to the four new members of the Gifts of the Spirit Chapter at St. Boniface, Augsburg, Germany.

Service and Support for Uganda During the Pandemic

Gifts of the Spirit Chapter at St. Boniface started and supports a charity organization called Bantu Uganda Augsburg. They began with farming and sewing, and also teaching Gods word. With the Covid-19 pandemic and lock-down, the people they serve have had a real fear. It is not so much the fear of dying of the virus, as of dying of HUNGER! They heard of one family locking themselves in their house and in the night burning the house to the ground.

There is some government aid but not for the small villages, so they decided to start a campaign to help.  They have sent food relief to fifteen needy families during the lock-down. Although the Daughters say this is just a drop in the ocean, and $20 to feed a family for two weeks may not sound like much, it helps the families they serve.  The chapter continues to hope and pray for Christian love and generosity as they live into The Order's motto - For His Sake.
