The Purpose Of The ICCS Is To:
- contribute to the complete education of young people through Scouting from the point of view of the Catholic faith;
- cooperate in developing and enhancing the spiritual dimension of Scouting in accordance with the unity and the diversity of the World Scout Movement;
- ensure that Catholics in Scouting are actively present in the Church and
- guarantee communication between the Catholic Church and the World Scout Movement. The ICCS is therefore in Scouting and for Scouting. It places itself at the service of education in the faith on behalf of all those within the Movement who have chosen the Catholic faith. The ICCS is convinced that the spiritual dimension expressed by the different religious communities is a factor of unity in the Scout Movement. It strives to play a leadership role within the Movement to foster the development of the Movement.
ICCS has been given the status of a consultative body by the World Committee. Within the Catholic Church it has the approval of the Holy See and the status of a Catholic International Organization (CIO). ICCS actively cooperates with the Pontifical Council for the Laity and the CIO Conference.
