Our Ministry is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to youth and adults involved in Scouting through faith formation programs and retreats. We reach beyond just those in Scouting and offer some of our programs to all youth! (More...).
An evening of celebrating, faith sharing, prayer, fun, and food. Bring your workbook and all project-related materials. Required for all The Spirit Alive recipients.
Date: February 12, 2014
Place: Cardinal Rigali Center
Required for all Spirit Alive participants!
"I now know how important the gifts are, and if you let them fill you, you will become closer to God.”
“I learned to be more open, to take risks and to have courage.”
“I understand how the Holy Spirit works in my life, and I am willing to share with anyone who asks.”
These are a few of the comments girls made about this year’s The Spirit Alive program, one of the eight faith-building programs sponsored by the Office of Catholic Scouting. The Spirit Alive program, open to all girls in high school, is designed to help girls grow in their awareness of the Holy Spirit. They learn how the Holy Spirit has manifested itself in the history of the people of God and the ways in which the Holy Spirit enlivens their own spirituality. The program’s emphasis is on prayer, study of Scripture and documents of Vatican II, and service to others.
After the girls complete the program, they attend an evening of faith sharing called “Sharing the Spirit”, and they receive their awards on Presentation Sunday at the Cathedral Basilica. As one girl remarked about The Spirit Alive program, “It’s a great way to refresh your faith and remember how much you love being so close to God.”
Ad Altare Dei review is required for all boys who have completed the Ad Altare Dei Faith Formation Award program.
Each scout needs to bring the program book and project related materials.
Once the review is completed the leader or parent collects the signed application and evaluation. The application is then turned in along with the payment for the medal, pocket card and knot. At this time you will receive a letter about the details of the Scout Sunday Prayer Service!
The leaders and parents are welcomed to attend!

TO: Youth Ministers Scout leaders and all those who work with youth,
On Tuesday night, Nov. 26th, we will be having a presentation on “Ministering to Teens with Same-Sex Attraction.” We are excited to have Fr. Knapp presenting who is the Courage Chaplain here in St. Louis. If you are unfamiliar with COURAGE, it is an apostolate of the Catholic Church that ministers to persons with the same-sex attractions and their loved ones. Blessed Pope John Paul II said, “COURAGE is doing the work of God!” You can find more about this ministry at http://www.couragerc.net/index.html
The night will include a presentation by Fr. Knapp, a Courage Witness, and time for Q+A. We also hope to have a representative from Encourage, which is an outreach of Courage that ministers to family and friends of persons with same-sex attractions.
Please also invite all those adult leaders who help you in youth ministry. We hope to have these Enrichment Evenings at least twice a year and if you have issue or topics that you would like addressed, please share those ideas with us!
Thank you for your loving serve to the youth of our Church!
