Youth

The Youth Coordinator serves as the liaison between the Youth Committees and the Parish Pastoral Council. Goals and activities to fulfill the mission of each committee are established yearly.

Boy Scout Troop 762

Mission:

To promote the scouting ideals of duty to God, to country, and to self.

Activites:

Troop 762 has been chartered by the Boy Scouts of America since 1962 and is for boys 11-18 years old. Boy Scouting teaches citizenship, leadership, moral values, duty to God and Country and outdoor camping skills. Troop 762 is a scout-run organization and the youth leadership is elected from the troop. The troop goes camping every month and our travels take us from the mountains of Colorado to canoeing in the Ozarks to high adventure camping at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico and the Northern Tier Canoe base in Canada. The scouts have fun as they advance in rank and maturity on the trail to Eagle, the highest rank in scouting.

Catholic Youth Ministry-CYM

Mission:

To fuel the fire of Christ in high school youth by encouraging strong relationships with God and others through unity, service and fun.

The activities include dances, game nights, cookouts, a ski trip, praise & worship, service projects, hosting coffee and rolls during the school year, open gym, fundraising and much more.

Mission:

To develop character and integrity in the youth of our parish, to teach responsibility and build confidence and leadership skills.

Activites:

The Cub Scout program at St. Francis of Assisi is a fun and exciting adventure for boys from 1st through 5th grade. The program is designed to help boys develop good sportsmanship, self-reliance, good character, learn teamwork and most of all - have fun. Scouting is a year round program where the scouts earn badges as they advance in rank and develop new skills, abilities and friendships. Pack meetings are usually held the fourth Tuesday of each month in Stewardship Hall.

Girl Scouts

Mission:

To build girls of courage, confidence, and character. The Girl Scouts Leadership Experience engages girls to discover themselves, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place. The troop provides volunteer opportunities for adults to participate in new experiences; and for children from kindergarten and above to engage in activites that help develop values to guide actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and foster a sense of social responsibility toward family, school, parish, and community. The community of St. Francis of Assisi parish provides a Catholic environment for scouts to learn more about their faith with their family, troops, and volunteers, earn religious scouting awards, and provide service to the parish and community.
