Our Mission Statement
Catholic Daughters of the Americas 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.
What Is A Catholic Daughter?
She is a common ordinary woman. She loves her God and church. She loves her family and cares for them in a most loving way. She loves her community - because without faith, family and friends, she stands alone and lonely. She is mature (over 18) in mind and spirit. She follows the motto of Unity and Charity by working for the church, family and community. By her membership many charities are supported in the state, national and local level.
Motto - Unity and Charity
The purpose of the organization is to participate in the religious, charitable and educational Apostolates of the Church. Catholic Daughters of the Americas engages in creative and spiritual programs which provide its members with the opportunity to develop their God-given talents in a meaningful way to positively influence the welfare of the church and all peoples throughout the world.
