How to Join? Make a call. Take a step into a great opportunity!

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) is one of the oldest and largest Orders of Catholic women in the Americas.

Members and courts donate to various charities, guild homes, administer scholarship programs, and strive to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness. The personality of each court will develop local court projects that enhance opportunities for its members to live the message of the gospels. We operate under the seven prong wheel of the Circle of Love. Please read more about CDA by visiting the various navigation tabs on this website.

We are daughters, wives, sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, single women, and women of a Religious Order.

Many of our members are wives of the Knights. In addition to their valuable service in the auxiliary, they find purpose, leadership, and a different focus in the Order of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas.

The CDA motto of 'Unity and Charity' opens up opportunities at the local, state, and national level for fellowship with other Daughters who pursue our mission of faith working through love in the promotion of justice, equality, and the advancement of human rights and dignity for all.

Your "YES" to membership with the Catholic Daughters of the Americas is an attitude of faithfulness. It is optimistic, passionate, and positive.

Your "YES" is a chance at something better. It may be a dream, your simple act of kindness, or a response to a tug at your heart. It is bold action and an inspiration.
