Catholic Daughters of the Americas

      Massachusetts State Court

About Us

 WE ARE WOMEN WHO EMBRACE THE GOSPEL AND WHO CONTINUE TO TAKE ACTION TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE!

Catholic Daughters of the Americas provides its members with programs to help focus on the needs of the church and society, both at the local, State, National levels, and Worldwide.  Our State structure consists of an elected State Board of officers – State Regent, 1st Vice State Regent, 2nd Vice State Regent, State Secretary, and State Treasurer.

At the local level, our elected Courts officers are Regent, Vice Regent, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, and Treasurer.  Local Courts are required to hold nine meetings a year beginning in September.  Time and place are decided and voted on by each individual Court.

Where We Came From

     The CDA was founded in 1903 and today has over 80,000 dues-paying members in 1,250 courts in 45 states across the United States as well as Puerto Rico, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.

  With guidance from our patron saint the Blessed Mother, we are a deeply spiritual group of Catholic women eighteen years and older that share our faith, love of God, and desire to help others in need.  Young women ages 8-18 can join our Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas.  Young college women are encouraged to become members of our Campus Courts.

  Interested in joining CDA but there isn't a court meeting close by?  We are but a phone call away!  All it takes is 15 members to start a court in your area.  Please contact our State Regent (see Contact Us page) for specifics.
