KELLER, Texas – Once upon a time, I was a very proud Eagle Scout. Today, I refuse to associate myself with the Boy Scouts of America. For a very short time, I felt like an orphan – but then I heard about the Troops of St. George.
Now, don’t get the wrong idea. The Troops are not a Catholic Boy Scouts; they are a very different thing. In fact, they are much more.
The Troops are an outdoor organization for boys where they learn about themselves and nature and they do it alongside their dad. And they learn accompanied by a priest who guides them spiritually while offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Alongside their camping knife, they have a rosary to pray, contemplating the mysteries of the rosary as they contemplate the mysteries of nature. Boys learn to be men alongside their natural and spiritual fathers, under the guidance of their mystical mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. (And by the way, She is the only woman invited to come along on Troop activities!)
Here’s the story, from Brian Squibbs, their National Director for Communications and Recruitment.
