We are providing a flyer with important information regarding Catholic-Sponsored units.
NOTE: ALL CATHOLIC-SPONSORED UNITS LOCATED IN THE ARCHDIOCESE OF LOS ANGELES ARE REQUIRED TO USE THE RECHARTER FORMS THAT WERE APPROVED BY THE ARCHDIOCESE.
It is important to understand that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles continues to fully support Catholic Scouting and in fact, encourages all Pastors to welcome Catholic Scouting into their parishes. But it is also important to understand that the Archdiocese REQUIRES that all Catholic-sponsored Units use the Recharter form specifically designed for the Catholic Church.
The following is a summary of the rechartering information that was presented by Mrs. Maureen Brown, Chairperson of the Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Please read this carefully and be sure to comply with these instructions.
Below is the September 2023 Roundtable recording. It also includes most of the Scouts BSA breakout about detailed Camporee prep info.
Note: The recording started a few minutes after starting, so I apologize for that. This recording includes the Scouts BSA breakout, however it too missed the first few minutes of that (I had to set up the camera inside the huddle).
Listed below are all the flyers from this Roundtable:
NOTE: Due to forecasted rain this event has been postponed to January 20, 2024!
For the upcoming Merit Badge Day on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at Palm Park, 5703 Palm Ave, Whittier, CA 90601, we have now released the merit badges offered and the session schedule.
Scouts should email the counselor to reserve their seat in a merit badge class (be sure to cc your Scout Leader and Parent on all emails, per 2-deep Youth Protection guidelines). Parents, please don’t email the counselor yourself to reserve a seat, your scout should be responsible for reserving their own seat (with the proper cc’s as mentioned above).
