State CDA Projects





·        Project Rainbow-Disaster Relief

When a disaster occurs, monetary assistance is forwarded to the Bishop of that Diocese for distribution.

·        Scholarship Fund

Each year, students have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship. A $400 scholarship is awarded to a Graduate here at St.Joseph. Every entry is also sent to the State level, where they have a chance to win $1000.

·        CDA Kid

Children under the age of 12 year with special needs are selected in each Diocese each year and monetary assistance is forwarded to the chairperson in each Diocese. This assistance is to help with medical bills, transportation, lodging or anything that is needed when the time arises.  Each year a new child is chosen in each Diocese. The regents of each court will receive nomination forms in the State newsletter. The court will choose a child to be submitted to the chairman in each diocese.
