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.
"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."
