Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas (JCDA), our youth program for girls ages 6 to 18 was founded in 1925. The Juniorettes, also known as the "Jetts" are ages 6 to 10. The Juniors are ages 11 to 18.
The JCDA motto is "Be Useful" with the mandate to "love God, serve others, and live nobly." JCDA's basic goals are:
JCDA offers Catholic girls a great opportunity to engage themselves in spiritual growth, leadership and service while they remain under the protective umbrella of our Catholic faith.
Our mentorship helps deepen JCDA's relationship with God, the Church and community. We empower them with leadership skills as they are the future of CDA, our Church and society.

Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her. Luke 1:45
Each month the JCDA members prepared information and incorporated scripture passages, pictures, and a prayer in a PowerPoint presentation to reinforce the learning in our virtual meetings. Since we have been unable to meet in person at this time, we got creative with our virtual meetings. We had a fun quizzes or played jeopardy games to reinforce the learnings from the monthly topics.
JCDA members also attend church sponsored retreat for middle schoolers.
