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.”


Lord God, may we, your people,
who look forward to the birthday of Christ
experience the joy of salvation
and celebrate that feast with love and thanksgiving.
Father in heaven, the day draws near when
the glory of your Son will make radiant the night of the waiting world.
May temptation not impede us from the joy
which moves the hearts of those who seek Him.

May the darkness not blind us to the vision of wisdom
which fills the minds of those who find Him.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
