Scouting as a Youth Ministry

The values taught in Scouting are the same found in the Gospels. Scouting is an effective way to help Catholic youths to do their duty to God and to their country. Scouting builds character and teaches devotion to God in an environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models. The scouting programs provide a wonderful channel to involve youth in the life of Catholic parishes.
Young people experience Scouting as a growth into personal maturity and social responsibility. They learn to assume their role in life with a high degree of commitment, and to care for others who are less fortunate. They develop a strong desire to build a culture of goodwill, respect for the environment and acceptance of duties. This includes the most fundamental of all duties - love of God and obedience to His will.


Our Vision

"We are a welcoming group that encourages our Scout Leaders to guide our scouting youth in their faith. To be the guiding force of Catholic scouting as youth ministry; fostering personal and spiritual growth, providing opportunities for full participation in the faith community and empowering young people to become disciples of Jesus Christ."
