Troops of St George

St Andrew the Apostle Church has started a ministry, the Troops of St George, the Catholic version of the Boy Scouts. The Troops of St George is designed for boys in the 1st Grade through their senior year in high school. This is a Catholic ministry for young men and their dads looking for a life of adventure coupled with virtue. It uses the outdoors as a game with a purpose. The game – to go camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing, and other adventures; to learn how to cook, tie knots, first aid, and other life skills. The purpose is to grow one’s faith, deepen one’s relationship with Christ, nurture the father/son relationship, build strong virtuous leaders, and teach citizenship.

If you and your son would like to join us on many different adventures, please join us for a meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7 PM in McGivney Hall.
