Web Bytes…

Greetings Sisters in Christ!  Welcome to our IA Catholic Daughters of the Americas website!  Congratulations on a National Award Winning site.  We pray you enjoy surfing the website for news and information.

It has been written that technology can be a great tool and another avenue to communicate with our members in addition to recruiting new ones.  In this fast paced world in which we live, the internet can be a great way of staying informed of current events and news releases.

Your contributions of information, activities and photos are needed for the website to stay fresh and relevant. It is my sincere wish to be of service to our state court by working to keep these pages filled with items of interest to all.

If you have pictures or a news article that you would added to your court’s web page; please send it to me at: Chris Peiffer; Webmaster – rcpeiffer@cloudburst9.net.  Article format preference is pdf format and all photos must be a jpeg format limited to 5 MB. Please type “CDA” in the subject line of the email, I will respond as soon as possible so you know that it has been read. Feel free to “snail mail” also.

Be sure to view the information on the “State Events” page regarding the “Anna Baxter Day” celebration, and the National page for all the upcoming information of the National Convention in July of 2018.  Check back often as information will be posted as we receive it.

As Catholic Daughters we support so many worthy charities, let us not overlook those closest to us who would feel joy just by a smile or a greeting.  Let us personify the Catholic Daughter motto “In Unity and Charity”, invite someone to join this wonderful organization of Catholic sisterhood.

Stay tuned for more news and updates…happy clicking!
