CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAS
COURT OUR LADY OF MERCY #1655
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas, founded in 1903, is the largest Catholic women’s organization in the world, with over 75,000 members. Our organization is for all Catholic women 18 years and above.
Under the patronage of our Blessed Mother, Catholic Daughters of the Americas are united in our faith and in our devotion to our Church.
The CDA has many exciting programs to motivate women to meet new challenges and respond to the teaching of faith. In our motto, “Unity and Charity”, which inspires us to work together within our courts and our communities, we strive to be helping hands where there is sorrow, poverty, pain, or sickness.
Our mission is to have every Catholic woman become a CDA member. Until then we are incomplete. We need everyone to help:
· Feed the hungry & clothe the naked
· Combat the evils of abortion and euthanasia
· Be actively involved in anti-human trafficking efforts
· Become involved with our legislators to bring about needed change
· Support priests, seminarians, and religious
· Care for our aged, special needs, and disabled citizens
· Support youth and pro-life programs
· Support Catholic education
AND SO MUCH MORE!!
Please join us to see first hand what joy there is in serving Jesus through the Catholic Daughters of the Americas. Join us with your God-given talents to positively influence the welfare of the church and all people, in our community, and throughout the world. CDA needs more of God’s Active Angels.
“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can fly only by embracing one another”.
