100 years of the Boy Scouts of America

BSA.jpgA CNS story caught my eye this morning regarding the positive impact of membership in Scouts and a priestly/religious vocation. I would agree, membership in Scouts contributed to my own discernment of a priestly vocation. The Scouts certainly takes serious the development of the whole person and works on interpersonal relationships as well as trusting others, BSA builds tomorrow’s leaders.

The Boy Scouts of America is celebrating 100 years this year. Congrats and abundant blessings!
