Our Scout programs represent the parish as the sponsor of its community service activities, like food drives, nursing home visits, taking part in Memorial Day service and parade, helping with parish chores, etc. We foster character development and dedication to the central themes of God, nation, and local community. Our fun and exciting activities (including camping) are run over 12 months.
