The largest organization of Catholic women in America. Our purpose is to participate in the religious, charitable and education apostolate of the church.
Meetings: 2 nd Monday of the month, September through June
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas and the world. We are dedicated to strengthening our spiritual life through Christ and His Church. Founded in 1903 by the Knights of Columbus in Utica, New York, they donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.”
Catholic Daughters women enjoy each other’s company at meetings and work hard for their parishes and communities. Deeply spiritual, together they 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.
The program includes concerns of today’s church and society as well as issues that affect the well-being of women and children.
Catholic Daughters of the Americas strives 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.
We encourage all Catholic women 18 years and older to join the Catholic Daughters of the Americas. Catholic lay and religious women 18 years of age or older, who love and support the Church and wish to participate in social and charitable activities, are welcome to join.
