DYER, Indiana – “If any good thing shall go forward, something must be adventured.” – St. Thomas Moore.
This fall, a small group of concerned dads is making preparations to locally charter a national group that pairs Catholic spirituality, male mentorship and outdoor adventure.
A search to find an organization for boys that promotes faithfulness to Catholic teaching and other qualities like “learning manly skills,” led St. Joseph, Dyer, parishioner Nick Richards to the Troops of St. George.
“My motivation is that I have sons,” Richards explained. “I sought to find something that is more in-line with Catholic doctrine and not so secular.”
