Twin Lights – Scout Sunday Service 2/19/17

 

A Scout is Reverent

The Scout Law says that a “Scout is Reverent” and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their “Duty to God”. These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.

The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out their “Duty to God” pledged each week.

This mass is one of the multiple events being held in our district which is open to all who want to attend.
