Calling all Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Leaders!

Saint Joseph Parish celebrates Scout Sunday on February 2, 2020, at the 9:00 am Mass.

What is Scout Sunday?

The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8, the Scouting Anniversary Day, as Scout Sunday, to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting.  Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the mid-1940s to bring greater awareness to Scouting and to allow Scouts to live out their “Duty to God” pledged each week.

A Scout is Reverent

The Scout Law says that  “A Scout is Reverent” and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their “Duty to God”. These values strengthen youth character in their family, community, and faith.  Scout Sunday is a beautiful reminder to ground ourselves in faith and reverence both in personal lives and in the Boy Scouts of America’s daily mission to make the world a better place.
