Deadline nears for Year of Faith scout patch

Four months left for scouts to earn popular patch

Click on the patch for requirements.

Less than four months remain for Catholic scouts to earn the Year of Faith Scout patch, according to Tim Wenzl, a representative for the Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of Dodge City.
“As the end of the Year of Faith approaches, we want to make sure that scouts who intend to participate in this religious activity program complete the requirements by Nov. 24,” said Wenzl.
“The number of patches is limited and adult leaders should reserve their numbers while they are still available.”
Thus far, scouts from the dioceses in Kansas, as well as scouts from 11 states have earned the Year of Faith scout patch.
“It has been interesting to see how wide spread the interest has been for this Catholic scouting activity,” Wenzl said. “Scouts in New York, South Carolina, Montana and Hawaii, and many Midwest states are already wearing this patch.”
The Year of Faith scout patch can be earned by boy scouts, girl scouts, and adult leaders by completing a series of requirements developed for particular age groups. There are requirements for scouts first through fifth grades; sixth through 12th grades, and for adults. The requirements can be found online at www.dcdiocese.org
