The Lord answered me, say not, 'I am too young.'  To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak.  Have no fear before them, because I am with you to deliver you says the Lord.
(Jeremiah 1: 7-8)

Message from Bishop Del Riego
"And, even now, in times of economic challenge, political change and cultural diversity, we still look to the Cross of Christ as the symbol of hope for all of God's people; and, today in particular for the faithful people who gather to honor the triumph of Christ on the Cross, the Tree of Life ... Let each of us dedicate ourselves again to be willing partners in bringing the hope of Christ's Resurrection to all in our community."
- Auxiliary Bishop Rutilio Del Riego on the occasion of the 100th anniversary Easter Sunrise Service on Mt. Rubidoux,
Riverside, CA, April 12, 2009

 Our Mission
The Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of San Bernardino is tasked with the responsibility of giving guidance, vitality, and leadership in the spiritual phase of Scouting to all Catholic Scouts and Scouters throughout the Diocese of San Bernardino.
As a Committee, we believe that the Scouting program is an effective way to help Catholic youth to do their 'duty to God' and to the country.  The Scouting program offers many benefits including character development and a devotion to God in an environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models.
Because young people experience Scouting as a growth into personal maturity and social responsibility, it is our responsibility as a Committee to strive towards the promotion of the Scouting program in parish-sponsored units and units sponsored by other Catholic organizations.
To receive the latest news from the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of San Bernardino including events and activities, please visit our Committee's newsletter (coming soon).
If you have any questions regarding the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of San Bernardino, please send us an email.  We are glad to help.

Attention all Catholic-sponsored units:

Cooperation, development, and program are the key words in the recognition of Catholic charted units in earning the National Catholic Quality Unit Award - Pope Paul VI.  The adult leadership responds to training not only in Scouting lores, but training in Catholic Scouter Development, and religious counseling.  The Scouts in each Pack, Troop, Team, and Crew/Ship respond by participating in the religious emblems program respective of their status in Scouting.

Does your unit qualify and meet the eligibility requirements for the National Catholic Quality Unit Award - Pope Pius VI?  For more information on the Pope Paul VI award including eligibility and application, please click here.  Once you have completed the application, please send the completed application via email to the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting chair for processing to scouting@sbdiocese.org
