Catholic and Religious Scouting



Religious Program

St. Simon Parish charters Troop 103.  We are open to boys of all schools and religions, although we have a strong focus on Catholic Scouting.  Some of the events and programs we participate in are Priesthood Sunday (recognition and thanks to our priests), Scout Sunday Mass, Catholic Religious Medals, Scouting for Food, St. Vincent de Paul outreach and Christmas Caroling. 

The religious emblems programs are optional programs created by the various religious groups to encourage youth to grow stronger in their faith. These programs are created and facilitated by the various entities. The Boy Scouts of America has approved these programs and welcomes religious organization to administer and facilitate these religious programs.  For more information visit the BSA Religious Awards Page

If you are interested in pursuing the Catholic Emblem (Ad Altare Dei or Pope Pius) or have any further questions, please contact us at scouting@stsimon.org or visit the Diocese of San Jose Catholic Scouting.

Thank you.
