Hail Mary, full of grace|
The Lord is with you
Blessed are you, amoung women
And blessed is the fruit
of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at
the hour of our death,
"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary.
Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart.
And to more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer,
neglect not to walk in her footsteps!"
St. Bernard of Clairvaux
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas motto is "Charity and Unity."

In 2007 Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Our Lady of the Alleghenies #1755 celebrated its 50th anniversary at Saint Catherine of Siena Parish, Duncansville, with a Mass celebrated by Father John Slovikovski, pastor, assisted by Deacon Dan O’Dowd. Concelebrants were Monsignor Roy F. Kline and Father Anthony J. Legarski. From the Catholic Register, but 2007 is no longer online.
We are grateful to have such experience guide us along our journey, as we serve the people of God, near and far. Thank you, Court Our Lady of the Alleghenies #1755, for making the time and having the endless energy in guiding us along our journey.↑ To Top
Prince Gallitzin was born December 22, 1770 at The Hague and died in Loretto, Pennsylvania on May 6, 1840. His life is one of service to God and His people. It is written that Prince Gallitzin was the first priest to receive all of his orders in preparation for the priesthood in the United States. Today, the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese has taken steps toward the Canonization of Prince Gallitzin.↑ To Top
The image above is symbolic of our CIRCLE OF LOVE program. By definition, a circle is a curved line with every point equal distance from the point of the center and bound together by the common interest. The seven point program of the CIRCLE OF LOVE is bound together by the common interest- LOVE.
The small heart in the center is taken from the logo of the HEART SPEAKS TO HEART program. By utilizing this portion of the logo and part of the Heart Speaks to Heart program that is compatible with the Circle of Love, a smooth transition occurs.

The Circle of Love is a National Program, focusing on: Leadership; Spiritual Enhancement; Quality of Life; Youth/JCDA (Junior Catholic Daughters of the Americas); Education; Legislation; and National Projects.↑ To Top
