Spiritual Services for Scouts - occurs through Boys and Girls Scout Troops, Camp Fire Groups, and approved programs. CYO helps to enhance the spiritual development of young people and their adult leaders by coordinating the National Religious Emblem Program for the Archdiocese of Detroit. Adult Christian leaders of youth also receive training, spiritual activities and recognition. Over 950 youth have completed programs this year.

FAMILY OF GOD UPDATE:  Effective January 1, 2014, a trained counselor is no longer required for the Family of God medal.  This medal can be earned by any girl in an approved program, with her parent serving as the Adult Advisor.  A Family of God Workshop will be offered during counselor training sessions to assist those who would like more information about this program.

TRAINING:  Training for Religious Emblem Counselors will be held on Feb. 14, 2015 and Oct. 3, 2015. Registration materials will be posted on the Training and Ordering tab approximately one month before each session.

RECOGNITION MASS:  Plan now to attend the Annual Scout Recognition Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, March 1, at 2 PM. Bishop Cepeda will be the Principal Celebrant.
