The Catholic Daughters of America's (CDA) motto is “Unity and Charity. The Catholic Daughters are one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. They donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.”
Catholic Daughter women enjoy each other’s company at meetings and work hard for their parishes and communities. Deeply spiritual, together they share faith, love of God and a distinctly feminine spirituality alluded to by Pope John Paul II when he spoke of the necessity of “feminine genius” in today’s world. The program includes concerns of today’s church and society as well as issues that affect the well-being of women and children.
Catholic Daughters of the Americas provides its members with updated programs to serve the current needs of church and country. The programs cover a vast scope of activities beginning at the parish level and expanding into all concerns of today's church and society. Regular meetings of the local courts are held once a month.
We encourage all Catholic women 18 years and older to join the Catholic Daughters of the Americas to share their responsibility.
