Joliet Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting to offer ‘Day of Recollection’ retreat on Feb. 26

All Catholic Scouts are invited to attend the 2022 Joliet Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting retreat on Sat. Feb. 26 at Our Lady of Peace in Darien from 9 a.m. to noon. This year’s theme is “Trusting in God” and how to bring him more fully into our lives.

The retreat is designed for Scouts in American Heritage Girls, Scouts BSA, Girl Scouts of the USA, Campfire and others, ages K-12. Children K-5 must be accompanied by an adult. Age-appropriate activities will be offered. A group Mass will end the day.

The retreat fulfills a requirement for Scouts who are working toward a religious medal. Scouts who have completed all other requirements may schedule a Board of Review to receive final approval for their religious recognition. Participating Scouts will receive a patch, a totem and/or participation beads.

The retreat is planned as an in-person event but may be moved to a virtual platform if needed.

Registration and permission slips are now available at www.dioceseofjoliet.org/scouting. Deadline for registration is Mon., Feb. 21. Cost is $5 per child/youth. Parents may attend free of charge but must also register. No “walk-ins” will be allowed and registration is by mail only. Call Chris Caragher at 630-842-4219 for any questions.
