DID YOU KNOW . . .

The Baton Rouge Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting is affiliated with the Istrouma Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts Louisiana East. The Committee is dedicated to promoting “Duty to God” at each level of Scouting. We are affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting® (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, National Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and Camp Fire (NCCGSCF), and Region 5 of the NCCS and National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM). 


Each year the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting holds several events to promote Catholic Scouting. These events include a Boy Scout Religious Encounter, Scouter Development, Religious Emblems Counselor Training, and a Youth Religious Emblem and Adult Recognition Ceremony with the Bishop. We are able to accomplish these events, because of the many dedicated leaders that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program.


Thank you for participating in the spiritual development of your scouts!

To all:

The link below will take you to an 8 ½ minute video of Scout executive Mark Turner’s speech at the Mecklenburg County Council’s 2017 Annual Banquet. I highly recommend you view the video in regard to the continuing review of transgender matters facing BSA and NCCS.
