Catholic Daughter Celebrates 70 Years of Service
October 6, 2022
GALENA—Norma Jean Kirpes, a longtime member of Court Isabella #572 of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, marked over 70 years of service on Sept. 2. Kirpes joined the Catholic Daughters of the Americas Nov. 18, 1951. Members of the court presented her with a 70-year pin at her home. 
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas (CDA) was founded in 1903 in Utica, N.Y., as a women’s auxiliary group of the Knights of Columbus. Although the Knights of Columbus split from the group in 1925, the CDA quickly grew until around 1950. Kirpes joined around 170,000 other women to support the Church through charitable activities. 
Today the CDA serves around the world through activities including honoring veterans, nurturing vocations, fighting sex trafficking and child abuse and ministering in prisons. 
Guided by the Blessed Mother, members of the CDA worship together, pray together and help each other be the best Catholic women they can possibly be.
