Catholic Scouting

For many years, the Catholic Church has recognized that scouting also teaches our youth how to be good disciples, responsible and active in their parishes and assists them in growing in faith. The Diocese of Fall River seeks to support scouts, their parents, scout leaders and local parishes. Scouting is Youth Ministry. It doesn’t take the place of youth ministry or the faith formation that occurs in the family and the parish, but complements it. I encourage you, whether you are a scout, family member, Youth Minister, Religious Education professional or clergy, to take a look to see what we have to offer.
