Scout Sunday - BSA had incorrect information on their website! The annual observance for Scout Sunday is February 4, not 11. Scouts who have earned a religious emblem or recognition in 2023 will be honored in the Catholic Times. Please have completed religious award forms submitted by the end of the year for inclusion in the 2023 honors. The order form as well as suggestions on how to celebrate Scout Sunday in your parish is available on the diocesan website at https://dio.org/scouts/.
