Catholic Daughters of the Americas - Court Sts. Anne & Joachim #2638
With the growth of the parish, it became apparent that the Christian Women’s group at Sts. Anne & Joachim needed to belong to a national organization in order to establish a clear identity. As one of the largest national organizations of Catholic women in the world dedicated to strengthening their spiritual lives through Christ and His Church, it was deemed that the Catholic Daughters of the Americas was the perfect fit, and so a local court was formed.
Court Sts. Anne & Joachim #2638 was instituted as a local court of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas on Friday, September 24, 2010 by Fr. Paul Duchschere and the state officers during a Mass held in the Magnificant Chapel. Officers were also installed during the institution Mass. Our court chaplain is Fr. Duaine Cote.
Mission Statement: 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.
All Catholic lay and religious women, 18 years or older, who love and support the Church and wish to participate in social and charitable activities, are welcome. Regular meetings will be held the second Monday of every month (August-May) in the Christ the King room (upstairs) at 6:30 p.m.
