Catholic Daughters

Mission and History:  The Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) was founded in Utica, New York in 1903 by John E. Carberry and several other Knights of Columbus as a charitable, benevolent and patriotic sorority for Catholic ladies. Catholic Daughters Court #2007 was founded in about 1969 and includes women age 18 and over from both St. James and Prince of Peace, as well as Elm Creek, Amherst, Shelton, Gordon and Thedford. We donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.


The CDA motto is “Unity and Charity.” The CDA today numbers 66,000 dues-paying members in 1,150 courts (local chapters) in 45 states across the country and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, Kenya, and Peru. Catholic Daughter 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.

Projects of our local court include:

Bake sales to raise money for scholarships for Catholic Seniors in high school

Providing desserts at the Knights of Columbus fish fry to raise money for local charities and the Catholic Daughters education fund

Serving/providing meals and drinks at the Newman Center, Habitat for Humanity, the Jubilee Center, Octoberfest and Springfest

Helping with Bingo at Mt. Carmel and donating to their store so the residents can “buy” things for their family and themselves

A Date Night to provide free child care so parents can have a night out alone once a month

Visiting residents in local nursing homes

Helping as needed with requests from the churches and community
