Religious Activities

The Diocese of Gaylord provides the opportunity for all youth to earn beautiful patches while doing activities to enhance their faith.  These activities, promoted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, are available to interested youth and adults,  Scouts or non-scouts, Catholic or non-Catholic.  This is a great way to invite all of the scouts in your troop to participate in an activity together. Contact the Diocese of Gaylord for information on how to begin. We can assist you locally with any of the items found at National Catholic Committee on Scouting.

These activities include: Rosary Series, Marian Series and Footsteps of American Saints.
