Scouting

How do we teach our young people the Christian value of serving the communities in which they live? Our parish Scouting programs continue a long tradition of building virtues and skills among our youth in preparation for their full participation in society.  The generous contributions of time and talent donated by our parish Boy and Girl Scout leaders help form the civic outlook and future involvement of our parish children and next generation Catholic citizens.

AHG is a Christ-centered scouting program for girls that emphasizes leadership and service to God, family, community and country. St. Peter charters an AHG troop for girls in our parish and school communities from ages 5 to 18 and welcomes all families to attend our events and support our ministry.
