Greetings Sisters in Christ!  Welcome to our IA Catholic Daughters of the Americas website.  We pray you enjoy surfing the website for news and information.

Our State Officers have returned from the National Conference in Scottsdale AZ. Check out the photos and the article written by Rita Carlson –  “Blooming with the Desert Roses” on the State Events page and  the Fall issue of “The Voice”.

The September Quarterly Newsletter from our National Regent Olga Samaniego is packed with news. Be sure to check out all the information on the 2019 Contest winners and the new forms for next year’s contests!

I received hundreds of pictures that I have added to the convention photo gallery. Hope you take a few minutes to enjoy them. Looks like it was a wonderful event!!  Special thanks to Joann Anderson, State Court photographer, Our Lady of Good Counsel #216, Fort Dodge!

And, as always, if you have any pictures or news articles that you would like added to your court’s web page; please send it to: Chris Peiffer; Webmaster – rcpeiffer@cloudburst9.net.  Article format preference is “pdf”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.

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.
