2012 Scout Mass

 Congratulations to Jack McCarthy, Owen Krappman & Declan Beyer for being awarded the Parvuli Dei Award on Saturday April 22nd.

Scout Mass is when our local Charter Queen of Angels Parish & Church recognize all our Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts for the community work and faith in Scouting that we provide back. A special mass is set aside for both units and the scouts to take part in the service. Any Scouts who earned the special Roman Catholic Parvuli Dei Award are presented this at the mass as well. If you plan on attending we ask the following to have your son wear his full uniform. Plan to arrive 10 minutes early. Scouts assigned roles in the mass should arrive at stated times below. Please quietly stay in the gathering space until mass begins. All Scouts will be in the opening procession and sit up front in the reserved pews with their leaders. After mass, the Scouts will hold a “coffee and” to thank parishioners for their support. Each den will be asked to provide a treat or beverage. Treats are for parishioners only, only after parishoners have cleared the premises should Scouts help themselves to leftovers.

Please plan on attending this special service.

Saturday April 21st @ 5pm

The pack or dens do not need to go as a group, but usually your scout does need to be dressed in uniform to prove he is a Scout. See below for all those activities..
