The twelfth point of the Scout Law is “a Scout is Reverent”, and in the Declaration of Religious Principle, Scouting “maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God.” Scouts celebrate their duty to God the Sunday on or just prior to February 8th. On this day the movement celebrates the contributions of program volunteers and charter organizations to achieving the vision of founder Robert Baden-Powell:
“Our objective in the scout movement is to give such help as we can in bringing about God’s kingdom on earth by inoculating among the youth the spirit and the daily practice in their lives of selfish goodwill and cooperation.”
– Lord Robert Baden-Powell
The Scouts of Troop 115 celebrated this year’s Scout Sunday with our charter organization St. Joseph Marello Parish.
