The Allentown Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting currently runs an excellent annual Boy Scout retreat that provides all Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII candidates the opportunity to attend a retreat as required by their workbook. At this retreat, Boards of Review are also held for all candidates. Scouts who pass thier board receive their medals at a special service held in May.
It is also the goal of this committee to expand the activities offered to our Catrholic Scouts to include a Cub Scout Day of Recollection and a diocesan-wide Day of Service for all Catholic Scouts to participate in.
For the adults, several activites are being planned which include training classes for Cub Scout Religious Emblems Coordinators/Presentors and Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII Conselors. These classes are currently run periodically, and have recently been added to the council's University of Scouting. A Scouters Development Workshop and an annual Recognition Dinner for adult award recipients and committee members are also in the plans.
