Club profile: The Catholic Daughters of the Americas

By Shanna Stencel,



What does it truly mean to be a Catholic woman? How can I apply my faith while on campus?

If you have asked questions similar to these, then don’t hesitate to consider becoming a Catholic Daughter. The Catholic Daughters of the Americas strive to develop and nurture their God-given talents and abilities, while enhancing leadership skills.

Here at Saint Mary’s, the group meets the first Sunday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in Toner 14B. The mission of the Catholic Daughters is to participate in the religious, charitable and educational apostolates of the Church. Catholic Daughters of the Americas engages in creative and spiritual programs that provide its members with the opportunity to develop their God-given talents in meaningful ways that positively influence the welfare of the Church.

Right now, we are in the process of establishing what is called a Campus Court. Through the court, we will be able to reach out to our local communities to make a difference. This group is in need of creative and enthusiastic minds that are eager to help serve our community. Some ideas that we have discussed include working with nursing home residents, making cards with inspirational quotes for patients in hospice care, teaching religion classes at St. Stanislaus, and sponsoring spiritual activities for students on campus.

With a motto of unity and charity, we look forward to being able to make a difference here on campus and in the community! If you are interested in joining or need more information, email Irene Mulyck at


Update 2/1/16 1:39 p.m.: The Catholic Daughters of the Americas are not an official, Student Senate-funded club at this time.
