Our office supports Catholic Scouting for both Scouts BSA and Girl Scouts by working with the Diocesan Catholic Committees on Scouting.
Catholic Scouting in the Diocese
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. They provide resources, booklets, and Catholic emblems/recognitions for Catholic youth and adults.
The Girl Scout Committee meets six times a year, provides training for adult leaders, and puts on workshops for Catholic Girl Scouts. They provide resources, booklets, and Catholic emblems/recognitions for Catholic youth and adults.
The committees work together to organize the annual Scout Mass with Bishop Gainer to honor all Scouts who have earned religious emblems and recognitions during the year.
