Allentown Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting
The Allentown Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting works with Catholic Scouts within the diocese and encourages a strengthening of their faith through participation in the religious emblems program. We believe that ALL Scouts should be living the Twelfth Point of the Scout Law of "A Scout is Reverent" and can show their devotion by working on and earning their religious emblems.
Within the five counties of the Allentown Diocese (Northampton, Lehigh, Berks, Carbon and Schuylkill) we have two Boy Scout councils: Minsi Trails Council located in Allentown, PA; and the Hawk Mountain Council located in Reading, PA. The religious program for the Girl Scouts are handled through the Region 3 National Catholic Committee for Girl Scouts & Camp Fire.
