Circle of Love

The Circle of Love image 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. The Cross and Crown in the center of the heart is the national symbol of the Order -- the Catholic Daughters of the Americas. 


The seven points selected indicate the needs of the Church and the community best served by the Catholic Daughters. The program itemized these needs with suggestions on how Catholic Daughters can effectively serve.
