Greeting fellow Scouters,
Scout Sunday, the first Sunday in February, is here.
St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish will be holding a Scout Sunday Mass at the 8 am Mass on Sunday, February 3rd.
ALL scouts, male or female, regardless of denomination, are invited to attend.
ALL scouts and adult leaders should wear Class A+ uniform (shirts tucked in, no hats, please!)
Scouts should plan on sitting with their troop, den, crew etc. We will have several pews reserved front and center for the scouts. Scouts may choose to sit with their families, but please note we did not reserve pews for 'families' in the front.
FLAGS: Troop/crew/pack flags are welcome. BRING YOUR OWN FLAG STAND. We will be setting up the flags to the right of the alter as you enter.
We are in need of scouts to bring the gifts (bread and wine) for presentation to the priest. WE WOULD LIKE ONE YOUNGER GIRL SCOUT (Brownie or Junior) and ONE CUB SCOUT (Wolf or Bear) to perform this task, along with ONE or BOTH adult leaders. The scouts selected for this task (and the adult leader) should be familiar with the offering of the bread and wine at mass.
It is my sincere hope that many Scouts and their families can join us in celebration of the 12th point of The Scout Law:
"A Scout is Reverent"
Please contact me with any questions or concerns,
