Troops of St George

St Andrew the Apostle Church is starting a new 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 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 to teach citizenship.

If you and your son would like to join us on many different adventures, please join us for our next meeting on Thursday, February 10th, at 7PM, in Mc Givney Hall.

Monthly meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7PM, in McGivney Hall, except in April due to Holy Week.
February 10th, 7PM
March 10th, 7PM
May 12th, 7PM
