Catholic Diocese of Rockford asking churches to stick with Boy Scouts
Spokesperson Penny Wiegert says the Diocese hopes to continue partnering in the formation of men:
“The requirements, both in the Boy Scout law and the Boy Scout oath, are consistent thus far with the teachings of the Catholic Church as far as moral behavior.”
Currently, 42 scouting units are sponsored by Catholic parishes or organizations within the Rockford Diocese.
