Catholic Daughters of the Americas


Message from State Regent

Hello and welcome to the Vermont Catholic Daughters of the Americas! We are glad that you are here to learn about the Catholic women who make up the 9 Courts that Vermont has throughout the state.

Formed in 1903, The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organization of Catholic women. CDA started in upstate NY and today has Courts throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico,Guam,The Virgin Islands, Kenya and Peru.

The CDA motto is "Unity and Charity"

Together at our meetings, we organize to become a more spiritual group by living a life of service for our Parishes, comminities and family. We strive to live by our Patroness', The Blessed Mother Mary's,example. We donate our time and talent to serve the Lord in whatever way each of us is capable. Vermont has many talented women who are skilled in leadership or craftmanship and who serve to enhance their spiritual family.

The first Vermont Court was instituted in 1912. Court Isabella #173 in Fair Haven is now celebrating their 107th anniversary. Our youngest Court is 81 Years old which is Court St. Veronica in Hardwick. Think of all the women who have been a Catholic Daughter through the years. Won't you consider becoming a part of a group of women working towards  a more spiritual life for yourself and others?

Please visit our Facebook page Catholic Daughters of Vermont to see what our Courts are doing. You can also visit our National website, for more information.
