Vision of our  regent's heartfelt idea for organized meals, cards, calls: whatever we can do to better provide support for our court sisters who are in need.

Count your blessings; pay them forward!

St. Laurence School

Help support St Laurence School by collecting
 BOX TOP for EDUCATION.

 Ronald McDonald House

Remember to save pull tabs from soda, beer, soup cans, etc.  This is an ongoing project to support Ronald McDonald House. The money earned from collections of pull tabs is used to purchase items for the family food pantry, cleaning supplies and to provide transportation for families to and from the Medical Center.

 CDA State Memorial Mass Scholarship Fund Prayer Cards

Memorial prayer cards are available. Purchasing a prayer card will enroll your loved one for a mass to be offered on every First Friday of the month by our State Chaplain Rev. Donald Ruppert in East Bernard, Texas.  All proceeds from this project fund the State memorial scholarship fund that is used to award scholarships to graduating high school students.

Memorial Cards are not just for sad events, but also for celebratory events, such as baptisms, weddings, new babies, new jobs, promotions, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations. 

 If you are interested in sending a card, contact Lucy Guin at 281-265-2782.

  Circle of Love Programs:
  1. LEADERSHIP
    A leader should be an individual “who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.” One of the most effective ways to put our God-given abilities to use, is by developing leadership skills.
  2. SPIRITUAL ENHANCEMENT
    Spiritual enhancement encompasses numerous ministries. It involves personal sanctification and helps us to develop programs that provide the opportunity to participate in the religious and charitable ministries of the church.
  3. QUALITY OF LIFE (Social Awareness)
    Quality of Life (Social Awareness) – issues of our national program are the heart of our ministering to the needs of all peoples. We are called to reach out with compassion and support, to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow and sickness.
  4. YOUTH
    Tomorrow’s promise lives in today’s youth for they will be the leaders, the citizens and the church of tomorrow. In responding to their needs today, we shape a better future for all. The Youth are an important part of our organization. We as Catholic Daughters need to nourish the spirit of the youth to ensure the continued growth of the Catholic Church and our organization.
  5. EDUCATION
    It has been said that education literally means “a drawing out” of a person’s talent as well as “a putting in” of knowledge or instruction. Each year the local courts sponsor an education contest with the winning entries being submitted onto the state level. Those winning entries are then submitted for the national contest.
  6. LEGISLATION/MORNING STAR
    Our obligation is to become better informed on public issues, addressing the morals and human dimension, while supporting church teaching on human life, human rights, justice and peace.(The Catholic Daughters of the Americas DO NOT ENDORSE CANDIDATES NOR ANY POLITICAL PARTY!)
  7. NATIONAL CHARITABLE PROJECTS
    The Five National Projects are:
    • Disaster Relief
    • Habitat for Humanity
    • Holy Cross Family Ministries
    • Smile Train
    • Support Our Aging Religious (S.O.A.R.)
