The mission of the Diocesan Scouting group is to provide Catholic Scouts and Scouters continued education in the Catholic Faith using the Scout Law and Scout Oath and an opportunity to earn Religious Awards as a result of their greater involvement in their Faith. The group also assists parishes and other Catholic entities in establishing Scout troops and packs.
