Mission Statement: “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.”
History of Catholic Daughters of the America In 1903, John E. Carberry and other Knights of Columbus founded the Catholic Daughters of the Americas in Utica, New York. After five short years, CDA had established 90 courts with over 10,000 members. Now they have courts established throughout all the United States, Cuba, Panama, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Guam, Virgin Islands, Mexico and Canada. CDA has a great sense of patriotism, for they heavily assisted through their physical efforts and monetary support during WWI and WWII. Our organization continues to uphold its motto: “Unity and Charity”. We do so by establishing fellowship among Catholic women, donating to many charities, and assist “where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.”
