"You, as women, have your own gift to offer to the Church - a gift that is very precious and much needed."
Joseph Cardinal Bernadin Former Archbishop of Chicage and Episcopal Advisor to the Daughters of Isabella
DAUGHTERS OF ISABELLA
The first circle of the Order was founded in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1897, as an auxiliary to the Rev. John Russell Council of the Knights of Columbus for the purpose of uniting all Catholic women in a sisterhood to achieve the following aims:
To know one another better
To extend our circle of friends
To centralize all our resources to better help one another
To be a greater force to contend with in the pursuit of good in our society
Today, it is one of the largest Catholic women's organizations, with a membership of over 60,000 women from the United States and Canada and has continued to prosper and establish bonds among Catholic women throughout the world.
Members encourage each other's total development and foster growth of every aspect of life - spiritual, social and charitable - adding up to a more fulfilling life!

Pariticipation in retreats, masses, novenas and other spiritual activities to develop a deeper relationship with God and others. Members also receive plenary indulgence and remembrances in masses and novenas throughout the country.
