A group of men at Saint Stanislaus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin were all concerned about the development of their sons, especially in light of the recent cultural decays permeating many youth-based organizations. With very few choices available, they pursued alternative options and held their own outings and events, until they realized they needed more. After a great deal of discussion, they agreed to charter with the Troops of Saint George and founded Troop 1683, Holy Name of Mary.
Now considered one of the largest and most active troops across the nation, Troop 1683 is home to over 100 troop members, with a goal to grow continuously as our message spreads across the Milwaukee-area. While we call Saint Stanislaus in Milwaukee “home,” over half our members are parishioners at surrounding parishes.
The mission of Troop 1683 is to develop young Milwaukee-area boys into heroic Catholic gentlemen ready for spiritual combat using the outdoors, Blessed Sacraments, and Holy Name of Mary. Blessed be The Holy Name of Mary!
