Catholic Scouting in the Diocese

Our office supports Catholic Scouting for both Scouts BSA and Girl Scouts by working with the Diocesan Catholic Committees on Scouting and providing resources, booklets, and Catholic emblems/recognitions for Catholic youth and adults.

Mass for Catholic Scouting on April 19, 2015

The Committees are made up of volunteer scout leaders that represent the many scout councils within our diocese.

The Scouts BSA Committee meets six times a year, provides annual training for adult leaders, and holds an annual DCCS Scouts BSA Retreat.

The Girl Scout Committee meets quarterly, provides yearly training for adult leaders, and organizes the annual Scout Mass with Bishop Gainer to honor all Scouts who have earned religious emblems and recognitions during the year.
