2019 NCCS ANNUAL MEETING
April 25 - 28, 2019
Tulsa, OK 74146
The International Catholic Conference of Scouting provides an opportunity
for its members to meet together as friends in the Catholic Church. It links the Catholic Church and the Scouting Movement
all over the world. It contributes to the complete education of young people through Scouting from the perspective of the
Catholic faith. It develops and enhances the spiritual dimension of Scouting in the World Scout Movement.
The Pope appoints priests to work with the International Catholic Conference of Scouting as ecclesiastical
assistants (chaplains). This recognition activity is an ongoing special project of the International Committee of the National
Catholic Committee on Scouting (USA). Proceeds will further the work of the International Catholic Conference of Scouting
and help enable representation by NCCS chaplains at ICCS meetings and NCCS chaplain support at international scouting events.
All youth and adults—Scouts or non-Scouts, Catholic or non-Catholic, male or female—are
welcome to participate in the Religious Activity Programs promoted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. These activities
include the Rosary Series, the Footsteps of American Saints, the International Catholic Awareness Award, and the Good Turn
Project. The activities may be used by families, schools, or any Girl Scout, Boy Scout, Cub Scout, American Heritage Girl,
Campfire or Venturer.
The youth and adults must
perform the requirements for their grade level to complete this activity. Click on the program link above related to the grade
level of the youth to see the detailed requirements. For a printable flier click here.
Completion of the Activity
After completing the requirements,
a parent or scout leader will complete the NCCS Order Form and mail it along with the applicable fee to the NCCS. The answers to the questions do not need to be forwarded when
ordering the patch.
The Pins, Medallions, and Patches
are to be presented to those who earned them and can be presented in a formal Awards Mass, Scout meeting, by family members,
etc. The key is to make the presentation special, so the youth understand why they have earned this patch. Also, the presentation
should be done in a timely manner so the youth is recognized shortly after completing the activity.
Ordering of Recognition:
Please submit your orders using the Online NCCS Order Form.
