If you are looking for an activity for your youth, then look no further. We have several activities that will help your youth learn more about their faith, learn more about Catholic role models, and become more aware of our global faith community and cultures.
Eligibility: All youth and adults—Scouts or non-Scouts, Catholic or non-Catholic, male or female—are welcome to participate in the Religious Activity Programs promoted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting®. These activities include the Rosary Series, the Footsteps of American Saints, the International Catholic Awareness Award, and the Good Turn Project. The activities may be used by families, schools, or any Girl Scout, Boy Scout, Cub Scout, American Heritage Girl, Campfire USA or Venturer.
The Rosary Series will focus on a
different set of Mysteries of the Holy
Rosary and an activity describing how to pray the rosary. This is an opportunity for the youth and adults alike to learn more about their faith.
There are 5 activities in all. They are the Joyful Mysteries, Luminous
Mysteries, Sorrowful Mysteries, Glorious Mysteries and Pray the
Rosary. A beautiful 5" diameter patch is available with each
The Footsteps of American Saints
The Footsteps of American Saints program is a series of religious activities that encourages youth to learn about several individuals who have shaped the landscape of Catholicism in America. Through a knowledge of the lives of these Saints and Blesseds it is hoped that participants will be inspired to imitate their heroic virtues and follow in their footsteps.
A patch with the saint’s likeness is available for each activity.
