Event or Page Image

September 14-16, 2018 Beaumont 

Join scouts from the entire Archdiocese for a weekend of faith, discovery, games, live music and more! Encounter Weekend is the perfect way to bring your scouts into relationship with Christ by the activities, community, and sacraments that will be offered. This year's theme "Seize the Summit" follows the journey of faith for a younger person as they are ignited by the love of Christ. This will be modeled by our staff, and showcased by our weekend patron, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, who famously said, "Verso l'alto" or "To the Heights" towards God and the voice of Christ. Adoration, live band, games, engaging faith discussion, what more could you ask for!

Sign your unit or individual scouts up today! Read more »

Teens, Guns, and Walkouts

Tony Phillips's picture

Yesterday teens all over the country, and many in St. Louis, walked out of school for 17 minutes to honor the 17 students who died in the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida last month. In addition to honoring their fallen peers, they also were calling for stricter gun control. Next Saturday, March 24th, there will be a “March for Our Lives” in downtown St. Louis, ending at the Arch, with the same goal.

As you talk with your teens over the coming days, weeks, and months, you might find yourself confused about what to say, how to support them, and what the Church teaches on this very divisive topic. Hopefully this will help. Read more »

Response to the Arrest of Jeffrey Eisenbath

Dear group leaders, chaperones, and parents,
 
I wanted to make you aware of a situation that has unfolded regarding a youth ministry volunteer who was present in the Generation Life Pilgrimage this year and has chaperoned several other youth ministry events in previous years. Mr. Jeffrey Eisenbath, who was a chaperone for Sacred Heart parish in Troy on the Pilgrimage, has been arrested by the civil authorities for possession of child pornography and felony invasion of privacy related to placing cameras in private restrooms, including in a restroom at Sacred Heart in Troy. These charges are public.
