Dear Catholic Daughters Court Mary Immaculate,
Bishop Burns has announced all Public Masses and Activities are suspended until at least March 30th. The Dallas County Health and Human Services have recommended following the social distancing protocols, including canceling, rescheduling, or not attending events with more than 250 persons. And high-risk individuals, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are being urged to cancel, reschedule, or not attend events that will have or will likely have 10 or more people.
This decision was not easy to make but was necessary. And after much prayer and looking to our Religious and City Leaders, we have decided to cancel any upcoming events.
The New Member Mass and Reception scheduled for March 22nd will be canceled and rescheduled when it is safe for us to meet again. More info to come.
The Monthly Meeting scheduled for March 23rd has also been canceled.
In this difficult and terrifying time, let us all pray for each other and the world. This COVID-19 will not break us, it will not shake our faith. Let us pray the world takes this as an opportunity to increase our prayer life, to rely more fully on Our Lord Jesus Christ. Lord God, keep us, our families, our family’s friends, acquaintances and all they come in contact in your loving hands. Help us make the right decisions. Please Lord guide our Political Leaders, help them to listen to you as they make all decisions. Help us to feel your loving arms wrapped around us loving us as only You can.
April Events will be evaluated as the current climate changes.
Your Regent and Board
Who We Are
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest
organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. The CDA motto is "Unity
and Charity". They donate to charities, administer scholarship programs
and strive "to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness".
The CDA was formed over 100 years ago in 1903 in Utica, NY and today's numbers are 75,000 members in 1,250 courts in 45 states across the country, and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guam and the Virgin Islands. Just recently, a new court was established in Kenya.
Deeply spiritual, the Catholic Daughter women share faith, love of God and a distinctly feminine spirituality alluded to by Pope John Paul II when he spoke of the necessity of "feminine genius" in today's world.
Making A Difference
The purposes of the organization are to participate in the religious, charitable and educational Apostolates of the Church. Catholic Daughters of the Americas engages in creative and spiritual programs which provide its members with the opportunity to develop their God-given talents in meaningful ways that positively influence the welfare of the Church and all people throughout the world. Catholic Daughters of the Americas strives to embrace the principle of faith working through love in the promotion of justice, equality and the advancement of human rights and human dignity for all.
