The Catholic Committee on Scouting for Girls is proud to provide an annual workshop on Catholic Religious Recognition Awards. The workshop is designed to equip you to assist the Catholic girls in your troop or parish in earning the religious recognition awards from the Diocese of St. Petersburg. The award programs bring a spiritual perspective to the Girl Scout programs. This training will prepare you to:

    1. Select and purchase the program materials
    2. Assist the girls in meeting the award requirements.
    3. Certify the girls’ work and submit their award applications.
    4. Learn about other opportunities including: The annual Girl Scout Retreat and the Younger Girl Retreat.
    5. Enable girls to grow in their faith.

NOTE: This training is mandatory prior to working with Girl Scouts on the Religious Recognition Awards.

Important Information:

    1. Bring your Fingerprint report and Safe Environment form with you to the training. Because this work takes place under the auspices of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, you must complete the Diocesan Fingerprint Screening and Safe Environment training prior to attending the Workshop. The reports should be available from your parish or Catholic school. If you can’t get the Fingerprint report from your parish, please be willing to sign a release from authorizing the Diocese to send the report to the Catholic Committee Chaplin.
    2. Do you have girls earning awards? Important dates to remember;

Girl Scout Recognition (during the Girl Scout Catholic Retreat): April 1, 2017

Deadline for submissions of applications: February 10, 2017
