Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas welcomes you.
Junior Catholic Daughters
Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas (JCDA), our youth program for girls 6 through 18 (Juniorettes 6 - 10 and Juniors 11-18), was founded in 1925. Use the inquiry form to find a JCDA court near you or to learn how to start a JCDA court in your area.
JCDA is a great way to engage our youth!
Catholic Daughters of the Americas also has a variety of annual scholarship programs. Information and applications may be found on the downloads section of the main page.
Father Ed Lamp's Sunday Reflection
Hope is the theme of the First Sunday of Advent. In the readings for Mass, Isaiah describes a future in which all is well because (1) God is recognized as the highest authority and (2) obeying him is the people's highest priority. This vision gave great hope to the oppressed Israelites. Today if we look at this as a description of heaven, it gives great hope to us, too. When we die, "terms" will be "imposed" upon us because we did not stay entirely on the paths of God (a good reason for purgatory), but we will be living in the light of the Lord after death and there will be no more wars to battle.
