Welcome to the Troops of St. George of St Martin De Porres Catholic Church & School in Prosper, TX.  Our Troop number is Troop #217, inspired from St Paul’s 2nd Epistle to Timothy, Chapter 1 Verse 7 (2 TM, 1:7):   “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control.”.   This is a very appropriate touchstone verse considering the strong parallels between the challenges the Church and the faithful face today and those that that were faced in the 1st century as outlined in St Paul’s second Epistle to Timothy, written shortly before his execution in Rome (~AD 67).

We became a troop in the late-Summer & Fall of 2020.

The Troops of Saint George apostolate aims to use the outdoors as our canvas and the sacraments as our path to light the way for the formation of Holy Catholic men and boys. Whether called to the vocation of the priesthood, the religious life, or that of Holy fatherhood, our fathers and sons will take a prayerful pilgrimage together to fulfill Christ’s desire for them to grow in virtue and in their Holy Catholic faith as they journey toward heaven.

Saint George, Pray for us!

Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother, Pray for us!

St Martin De Porres, Pray for us!
