The Rule of Service

The Rule of Service

Through her Rule of Service, a Daughter daily seeks to do the will of God where she is, remembering Jesus’ words, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of did it for me.” Matthew 25:40 (NIV). The Rule of Service is the application and extension of our baptismal vows. As part of her Rule of Service, each Daughter promises:

  • To be Christ’s faithful servant in the extension of His Kingdom.
  • To regularly take part in the worship, study and work of the Church.
  • To render at all times aid to the clergy as deemed necessary for the spiritual up-building of the parish.

The Rule of Service does not designate when, where, or how a Daughter or chapter should serve. Through prayer and discernment Daughters are led to areas of need in our churches and communities. The Rule is simple because we can serve through any word or deed that is said or done with the sincere purpose of bringing a soul nearer to Christ.

There are always more “needs” than we have time and energy for, so we ask the Holy Spirit to lead us to those who will be blessed by who we are and what we have to give. In carrying out our service, we are mindful that our spiritual roots need to be deep enough to balance our activities. Our Rule of Service is always supported by our Rule of Prayer, although neither is complete without the other.

“Prayer without work is empty words,
Service without prayer is labor lost.”
