Formed in 1903, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas is 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.”
They focus on a program called the “Circle of Love”. The seven points of the circle are areas the members can help their community and church and are all connected by love. Each Semester one or two points will be chosen to work on to better focus on helping the community.
The CDA motto is “Unity and Charity.”
The CDA was formed over 100 years ago and today numbers 70,000 dues-paying members in 1,250 courts (local chapters) in 45 states across the country, and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
Catholic Daughter women enjoy each other’s company at meetings and work hard for their parishes and communities. They focus on growing in their faith alongside each other.
