The Daughters of St. Paul (Latin: Filiarum Sancti Pauli) (Italian: Figlie di San Paolo) is a Roman Catholic international religious congregation founded in 1915 in Italy.

The congregation is part of the worldwide Pauline Family, one of the ten institutes founded by James Alberione, and operates in 51 countries around the world. Mother Thecla Merlo (born Maria Teresa Merlo) assisted in the founding and development of the Daughters of St. Paul and other Pauline institutes that developed throughout the 20th century.

The Daughters operate Pauline Book and Media Centres across the world. In addition, they also run Media Education Centres, Radio and Internet Channels (YouTube), and related institutions across the globe.
