Texas CDA - Welcome

      State Regent Eve Trevino

Formed in 1903, under the patronage of the Blessed Mother, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) are united by their faith in Jesus Christ and their devotion to the Catholic Church. We are one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas.

The Texas State Court was organized January 25, 1917. Our Mission Statement is a reflection of the CDA motto of Unity and Charity; "The members of the Texas State and Local Courts love Christ and His Church. We are dedicated to leading others to Christ and to His service through active participation in the Catholic Daughters of the Americas."

The Statue of Our Patroness, Mary, the Blessed Mother of God, is on display at the National CDA office in New York. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patroness of Texas.







“Everything is possible to the one who has Faith.” Mark 9:23

Quarterly Prayer Intentions

The following are the prayer intentions for the current quarter. Please share them with your court members. “Where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I in their midst.” Matthew 18:20

  • For the church and its leaders, both ordained and lay persons, that they may always have the courage to preach and live the Gospel.
  • For those who govern the nations, that they may heed the voice of Jesus and find remedies for every injustice, find an end to conflicts, provide opportunities for the basic necessities of life, and restore support to families and the marriage of one male and one female.
  • For those in need, suffering, lost, and those who are troubled in spirit, that they may find healing in the name of Jesus.
