Who We Are

Formed in 1903 the Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. We are a national organization, with 63,000 dues-paying members in 1,150 courts (local chapters) in 45 states across the country and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guam and the Virgin Islands. We provide local spirituality, fellowship, sharing environment and life enhancing activities for Catholic women. Members donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.” They embrace the principle of faith working through love in the promotion of justice, equality and the advancement of human rights and human dignity for all. Court St Catherine #1378 was installed on April 1946.

“Unity and Charity”

Our patroness is the Blessed Mother Virgin Mary, and under her guidance members are united by their faith in Jesus Christ, in their devotion to the church and the Holy See.

“Spirituality and Service”

Deeply spiritual, members 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. Catholic Daughters worship together, pray together and help each other be the best Catholic women they can be. Their spirituality forms their actions as Catholic Daughters who strive to embrace the principle of faith working through love in the promotion of justice, equality, and the advancement of human rights and human dignity for all.

Robustly charitable, members give their time, energy, stewardship, hearts and finances to help others in the service of Christ.

What We Do

Catholic Daughters women enjoy each other’s company at their monthly meetings and in their shared spiritual and charitable endeavors. They work hard for their parishes and communities. Many speak of the satisfaction they receive when sharing “women time” together. And they enjoy sharing their efforts and companionship embarking on the Catholic Daughter programs that respond to the many concerns of today’s church and society and the well-being of women and children, including our signature program Circle of Love at https://catholicdaughters.org/#Circle.

For those with an activist inclination the legislative program encourages interested members to learn about laws that may influence their faith and to contact their state representatives to make their personal positions known through Operation Morning Star. (Please note that the Catholic Daughters of the Americas does not endorse political candidates).
