The Retreat is for Catholic and non-Catholic Christian girls and boys in the various Scouting programs wishing to work on the Religious Awards of their faith. The registration flyer link is below.  Note that this year’s form is a fillable PDF with full comments on each field to help fill in the information.

The Retreat will offer an Alternate Awards session that will offer awards from the Footsteps of American Saints, Women in Scripture, and/or Models of Faith patch series. These are great awards to help deepen your faith and learn about famous Christians of the past.

If you have a connection to your parish office and wouldn’t mind contacting them, we would appreciate you putting the following announcement in your Sunday Bulletin at least a two or three Sunday’s before the Retreat:
