Archdiocese of Hartford - Catholic Committee on Scouting

The Catholic Committee on Scouting was established to promote the spiritual, citizenship and character development of Catholics involved in either the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts program. Scouting is recognized as a very important part of the Youth Ministry program within the Archdiocese of Hartford. The Catholic Committee is responsible for:

  • Promotion and assistance in training of Catholic youth and adults.
  • Promotion of religious emblems programs and recognition.
  • Training of religious emblems counselors and leaders in spiritual development.
  • Promotion of scouting as a youth ministry for parishes.
  • Providing spiritual enrichment for scouts through various activities.
  • Recognition of those who have both completed spiritual enrichment programs and those who have given so much of their time and talent.
  • Documenting all those who have been trained,attended functions and received recognition.
  • Working with other departments of the Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis and the scouting community to help fulfill the needs of our youth and leaders.

The Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis and Catholic Committee on Scouting have materials and services available to promote and enhance the programs within the Archdiocese. The goal of this committee is to enrich and nurture the spiritual needs of our scouts and leaders. Catholic Scouting plays an important role in the development of our children’s relationship with the Lord and with His Church. We are grateful for our scout leaders and for their many hours of work and dedication. We hope that more of our youth and adults become involved in Catholic Scouting. We also pray that almighty God may continue to bless the work of this important ministry.
