Catholic Daughters

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas.     
Contact:  Diane Clarke-Hawkins


The Catholic Daughters follow the motto "UNITY and CHARITY" and strive "to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness."

Formed over 100 years ago the CDA has over 95,000 members in more than 1,400 courts (local chapters) in 45 states across the country (and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Guam, and the Virgin Islands). These ladies meet to initiate and implement projects to benefit their parishes and communities.
CDA ladies share faith, love of God and feminine spirituality with their involvement in society issues both within their church and those that affect the well being of women and children.
Girls and young women ages 8-18 can join the Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas.

 Here are some of the projects of the Catholic Daughters:

White Ribbon Against Pornography Campaign

The week of October 29 through November 4 is “White Ribbon Against Pornography Week”.  White ribbons will be distributed on October 28 and 29,  following all Masses.

Pornography harms men, women and children; it   destroys marriages and lives.  Please wear your white ribbon this week, and tell your friends about the  campaign.  Wrap a white ribbon around your mail box and tell your neighbors what the white ribbon signifies.


Campaňa del Listón Blanco Contra la Pornografía

La semana del 29 de octubre al 4 de noviembre es la semona del Listón Blanco Contra la Pornografía.  El 28 y 29 de octubre se distribuirán los listones blancos depues de todas las misas.

La pornografía hace daňo a los hombres, a las mujeres y a los niňos y destruye los matrimonios.  Por favor lleve puesto su listón blanco esta semana y digale a sus amistades porque lo lleva puesto.  Puede poner un listón blanco alrededor de su buzón y dígale a sus vecinos lo que significa. 


We donate to local and national charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.” We undertake events to financially support the charities we support.   


We collect Box tops for Education to support programs at Asheville Catholic School.  Box tops are collected and sent to ACS twice a year, in April and December.  Members of the parish are encouraged to participate. Box tops may be given to any Catholic Daughter.  


Catholic Daughters thank the members of SJA for their donations of suitcases and bags for children in Buncombe County Foster Care.  Over 100 suitcases and bags were collected. We will be holding this collection again in the future, so save those suitcases!

Thank you again for your generosity and support.
