Eagle Scouts can now be given a letter of congratulations from Pope Francis.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Committee on Scouting works with Catholic Scouts, Scouters, and Scouting units within the Archdiocese. We work to strengthen the faith of those in the Scouting program by offering educational activities, fellowship events, and opportunities for evangelization. We believe that all Scouts should live the 12th point of the Scout Law: A Scout is Reverent.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia covers the City of Philadelphia, and the Counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery. Our Boy Scout councils include the the Chester County Council, the Cradle of Liberty Council, and the Washington Crossing Council.
