Scouting in the Catholic Church - 2013 Information
Philmont - July 21 - 27, 2013
The 2013 Scouting in the Catholic Church Conference is scheduled for
July 21 - 27, 2013. The conference brings together religious and lay participants
with varying experience in Scouting and the Catholic faith. The goal of
the conference is to help the participants understand how Scouting is
a Youth Ministry and how to use the information in their dioceses* when
talking with Scouters, priests, and youth ministers. Ben Feril will be
the Course Director, Father Norm Supancheck the Course Advisor, and George
Sparks and Nancy Watts rounding out the staff.
The Scouting in the Catholic Church Conference was developed to meet
the needs of all who labor in the field of Scouting as Youth Ministry.
Laity, clergy, religious, youth ministers, Scout Execs, members of the
Council/District Key 3, Council Membership chairs, vocation directors,
youth ministry directors, CYO Directors, pastors, CORs, regional and diocesan
committee chairs, chaplains, and committee members -- all who seek to
better serve our youth through Scouting as Youth Ministry are welcomed
and encouraged to attend!
