The Catholic Daughters established the Junior Catholic Daughter program in 1926. It is a program for Catholic girls from 6 to 18 years of age. The girls may join JCDA in an area where and adult CDA court is established.
Our 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.
The JCDA motto is “Be Useful” with the mandate to “love God, serve others, and live nobly.”
The goals and objectives of the JCDA program are divided into a Threefold Program of:
Message; Service; and Community.
How To Join
If you are a Catholic girl 6 to 18 years old, or the parent or relative of one, and you know of a JCDA Court within your parish or community, it’s easy to become a member. For more information on California’s JCDA Courts or to establish a new court, contact:
