Many young people of our diocese are now, or previously have been, involved in the Boy Scout Ministry in Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops, sponsored by our parishes and schools. Each year in our diocese, we celebrate a Scout Mass in June to recognize all those involved in scouting. Through the Boy Scouts of America awards program, Catholic scouts are provided the opportunity to earn different religious emblems, which are provided by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting.
After the pastor signs the form, the scout should keep a copy and send the original form and a check made payable to the Diocese of Metuchen in the amount of $8.50 per medal to:
Diocese of Metuchen - Maria McNulty
146 Metlars Lane
Piscataway, NJ 08854
Please call (732) 529-7928 for hours of operation. You may pick up your medal at that time.
Boy Scouts need to seek approval from their pastor and must work on their religious awards with an approved Counselor or Facilitator – click here for the Counselor Application. For contact for a counselor near you contact Denise Halpin at (732) 656-0455
Religious recognition programs are available to those involved in the Girl Scout Ministry. The programs reinforce formal religious instruction provided by parishes. Small groups of girls meet – separate from troop meetings – with a practicing Catholic adult. The program books, published by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry of which the National Catholic Girl Scout Committee is a member, include guidance for Advisors and parents.
Bishop James F. Checchio celebrated the 2016 Diocesan Scout Mass on Saturday, June 4 at 7 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Francis of Assisi, Metuchen. Stay tuned for the 2017 date.
