Diocese of Owensboro Catholic Committee on Scouting

We are a committee of adults involved in Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts who promote an integration of Scouting with the Catholic Faith.  We do this through promotion of Religious Emblems and retreats and communications. Each year we celebrate a mass with Bishop Medley and confer the Religious Emblems earned by Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and adult awards for those adults who have shown outstanding leadership in Scouting and the Catholic Church.  We meet monthly and have a planning retreat once per year.
