Mass for Catholic Scouting

Mass for Catholic Scouting on April 19, 2015

Our office supports Catholic Scouting for both the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, by working with the Diocesan Catholic Committees on Scouting and by providing resources, booklets and Catholic emblems (boys)/ recognitions (girls) for Catholic adults and youth.

The Committees are made up of volunteer scout leaders that represent the many scout councils within our diocese. The Boy Scout Committee meets six times a year, provides a yearly training for adult leaders and holds an annual Boy Scout Retreat. The Girls Scout committee meets quarterly and also provides yearly training for adult leaders.

Annual Recognition Mass- Sunday April 30, 2017
