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.

Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are open to boys in 1st grade through 3rd quarter of 5th grade when scouts cross over into Boy Scouts. Our Boy Scout troop is open to any young man from the 3rd quarter of 5th grade through his 18th birthday.  The only requirement is that he commit himself to living by the Scout Oath and Law.
