About Catholic Scouting

Catholic Scouting plays an important role in the development of young peoples’ relationship with the Lord and with the Church. We are grateful for the Catholic Committee members and our scout leaders for their many hours of dedication and hard work. We hope that more of our youth and adults join in Catholic Scouting and pray that God may continue to bless the work of this very important ministry.
