Prophet William Saunders Crowdy through divine vision established the Daughters of Jerusalem and Sisters of Mercy on June 26, 1898 making this organization one of the oldest women’s organizations in the USA. Before the sororities and other social groups, there were women who were praying for the welfare of others, assisting in distress and aiding suffering humanity. The religious principles of this women’s group set it apart from other groups, “undergirded with a dynamic God consciousness”.

The mission of Daughters of Jerusalem and Sisters of Mercy of “aiding suffering humanity’ was  inspired by its Founder Prophet William Saunders Crowdy.  In the vision for the Daughters of Jerusalem and Sisters of Mercy, Prophet William Saunders Crowdy  named the officers after women in the Bible, holding the officers of the organization to the highest spiritual and moral standards.

Today, the Daughters of Jerusalem and Sisters of Mercy have quorums  throughout the United States, Jamaica and Africa.
