Adult volunteers are welcome and much needed. Please click here to register. Any questions can be directed to the Diocese of Metuchen Committee at DOMgirlscouts@gmail.com.
Parish Girl Scout Coordinators
Parish Coordinators serve as a local resource for those who wish to receive information about diocesan Catholic Scouting programs. They assume this function for their own parish, or if they wish, for several parishes. They are the local contact available to Advisors, and they facilitate plans for Brownie medal presentations in the local churches.
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.
The Diocese holds the annual Girl Scout Gathering in the fall. Junior, Cadette and Senior/Ambassador or Scouts that participate will complete several activities for their prospective medals.
The God is Love and Family of God programs are completed by Daisy and Brownie Scouts and their families and medals are often awarded at the girl's parishes on Girl Scout Sunday. Junior, Cadette and Senior medals will be presented at the annual Scout Mass held at St. Ann's Church in Raritan.
Are you a scout leader or former scout leader who misses being involved, but are not able to commit to weekly meetings? We are seeking volunteers to guide scouts through action-oriented programs that complement their religious education programs, to introduce them to ministry and to help them mature in their Catholic faith. Activities are planned with varied time commitments. If you are interested, please contact Maria McNulty at the diocesan office, (732) 562-2446 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Handbooks containing the requirements to complete Catholic medal programs for Brownie, Junior, Cadette, and Senior Girl Scouts may be ordered from the Diocese of Metuchen at $6.50 per book. Checks should be payable to: Diocese of Metuchen. Each girl needs her own book. An application is in the back of each book. Copyright laws prohibit copying any part of the book. Handbooks can be ordered by mail or phone:
