Daughters of the Holy Cross, Grace Chapter, is committed to making disciples and serving Jesus through our Rule of Life: prayer, service, study, and evangelism. We pray for the clergy, staff and congregation as well as studying the Word of God to grow in our faith. Serving others and sharing the gospel is part of how Daughters live out our rule of life.
Our chapter meets once a month. Some meetings include ‘Lunch and Learn’ presentations with videos, etc., of appropriate subjects and church members are invited. Our service projects include making Manna Bags for the homeless, collecting medicines and supplies for our Holy Spirit Outreach, and providing support for our local schools.
