Daughters of the Ascension is a chapter within the Daughters of the Holy Cross.The Order provides a community in which you can fulfill a lifetime vow to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We expect and assist each member to earnestly develop and practice each of these areas.
We pray daily for our church, her clergy, the Order, and others in need. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we reach out to those who do not know Jesus and share His message of salvation through word and deed. We equip ourselves with the powerful sword of truth as contained in the Holy Bible. We wear our cross as a symbol of Jesus’ sacrifice and our need for Him to be in our daily lives and we become encouraged and strengthened in community with our sisters.
We invite the Holy Spirit to guide us and welcome you to be guided by that same Spirit as you determine if you are called to be part of the Order.
PRAYER OF THE ORDER
O gracious and Holy Father, that thy Son may be glorified,
give thy Daughters wisdom to perceive thee, intelligence to understand thee,
diligence to seek thee, patience to wait for thee,
eyes to behold thee, a heart to meditate upon thee,
and a life to proclaim thee; by the power of the Holy Spirit
through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
