Scouting in the Catholic Church - 2013 Information

Philmont - July 21 - 27, 2013

The 2013 Scouting in the Catholic Church Conference is scheduled for July 21 - 27, 2013. The conference brings together religious and lay participants with varying experience in Scouting and the Catholic faith. The goal of the conference is to help the participants understand how Scouting is a Youth Ministry and how to use the information in their dioceses* when talking with Scouters, priests, and youth ministers. Ben Feril will be the Course Director, Father Norm Supancheck the Course Advisor, and George Sparks and Nancy Watts rounding out the staff.

The Scouting in the Catholic Church Conference was developed to meet the needs of all who labor in the field of Scouting as Youth Ministry. Laity, clergy, religious, youth ministers, Scout Execs, members of the Council/District Key 3, Council Membership chairs, vocation directors, youth ministry directors, CYO Directors, pastors, CORs, regional and diocesan committee chairs, chaplains, and committee members -- all who seek to better serve our youth through Scouting as Youth Ministry are welcomed and encouraged to attend!
