Oregon Catholic Daughters of the Americas

Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas

Our JCDA activities promote Christian values, accepting the Christian message and acting on it, and build lifelong friendships.

Junior Catholic Daughters is a threefold program with focus on our young women.  Our program includes:
Youth have a right and a duty to be an active part of our community.  JCDA offers structure, guidance, community, and service to all girls between the ages of 6-18.  JCDA members must not only accept the Christian message, but act on it.  They must be motivated to build a community in all areas of life. 
Today's world requires Christians to become involved in seeking solutions to problems such as war, poverty, abortion, discriminations, and other current issues.  The program is flexible, and allows adult leaders to tailor the meetings to the needs of the youth.
The program books are used to enhance spiritual guidance and growth.  There are four books in the series; Family of God, I Live My Faith, Marian Medal, and Spirit Alive.  Medals are awarded from the Archdiocese after the completion of each book.  These are age appropriate, and paced for the girls to learn and understand their faith journey.  Leaders and family members are an intergral part of this process.
