About Catholic Daughters

Our Mission: Catholic Daughters of the Americas strives to embrace the principles of faith working through love in the promotion of justice, equality and the advancement of human rights and human dignity for all mankind.

Our Motto: Unity and Charity

Our Purpose: As the largest organization of Catholic women in the Americas and founded through the Knights of Columbus Catholic men's organization, our purpose is to participate in the religious, charitable and educational Apostolates of the Church.

Serving God by Serving Others: Lord, we ask you to bless our court. Make us a family of one heart and one mind in love for you. Grant that our common life and work may be an example to all around us. Guide our chaplain, regent and officers in their work. Make us one mind in truth and one heart in charity. Acknowlege the prayers and petitions of our members, and keep us secure in your love. We ask this in union with Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior.  Amen

Prayer: Lord God, You blessed Elizabeth Ann Seton with gifts of grace as wife and mother, educator and foundress, so that she might spend her life in service to Your people.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen

Prayer from the St. Elizabeth Seton School (Naples Florida) from Ordinary People Extraordinary Lives.
