Catholic Daughters of the Americas
From its inception in 1903, Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) has grown and developed into one of the largest Catholic women's organizations in the Americas. Under the patronage of the Blessed Mother, its members are united by their faith in Jesus Christ and their devotion to the church and Holy See.
Guided by the motto, Unity and Charity, the organization participates in the religious, charitable, and educational Apostolate of the Church. CDA members engage in creative and spiritual programs for the welfare of the Church and people worldwide. They strive to embrace the principle of faith working through love in the promotion of justice equality and the advancement of human rights and dignity.
Local Court Isabella #785 was instituted in 1923 at St. Edward Church and is dedicated to our Patroness, The Blessed Mother. Our meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month in the Cross & Crown Room at 6:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted.
The Catholic Daughters support many local, state and national charities, such as:
▪ Sponsor an education contest through St.EdwardSchool and Religious Education classes.
▪ Contribute to Seminaries to further vocations.
▪ Provide scholarships to two graduating students from Saint EdwardSchool.
▪ Provide one scholarship to a graduating Stafford High School Senior.
