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

It has been an honor for me to serve as your webmaster for the past several years and now as your State Secretary.  I want to thank all of you for your input in sending articles, photos and your astute advice in every way.  You have made this website successful!  Our quest for a new webmaster has been accomplished!

Please join me in welcoming your new webmaster, Chris Peiffer!  Chris has extensive work in graphic design and navigating websites.  Chris is a member of #504 McDermott and the current District Deputy for Court Craigie #94.  Welcome Chris and thank you for prayerfully excepting this ministry.

I have written before that technology can be a great tool and another avenue to communicate with your members in addition to recruiting new members.  In this fast paced world we live in, the internet can be a great way of keeping informed with up to date current information and news releases.

Some of the more recent updates to our website includes a slideshow on the home page.  This is to highlight different events and celebrations you are hosting in and around this great state of Iowa.  Also be sure to view the information under 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 to both links as information will be posted as we receive it.

If you have pictures or a news article that you would like on your courts webpage please send it to:
Chris Peiffer; Webmaster at rcpeiffer@cloudburst9.net    Article format preference is pdf format and all photos must be a jpeg format limited to 5 MB.  In the subject line of the email please type “CDA”,  we will respond upon receipt of the email so you know that it has been read.

As Catholic Daughters we support so many charities of those in need, 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.
