The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is the largest and oldest organization of women in the world. Our local chapter was established on April 23, 1921. The goal of the Catholic Daughters is to work together to spread the joy and love of Christ through our service to our parish and community, in Key West, Florida
We are Sisters in Christ. We work with our Parish community of believers. We support one another’s values and beliefs. We nurture the faith of our members in a variety of ways including adult education programs, the Basilica School, the SOS Outreach Mission, St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, and many other charities under the loving arms of Our Lady Star of the Sea in Key West, FL.
We are also always ready to welcome new members to our group. Anyone interested in obtaining information and joining Catholic Daughters is asked to contact Iris Bernreuter, Regent (305) 294-9233) or Elizabeth Bunting VR 305-393-2195.
The Catholic Daughters meet in the Star of the Sea Room of the Klaus-Murphy Center on the first Sunday of every month after the 9:00 a.m. Mass.
