First Cub Scout Camping Trip

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

We spent Saturday afternoon and night camping behind Saint Joseph’s. Because we’re Cubs every boy was accompanied by his father for the night. We hiked in the woods; we cooked hot dogs; we built a tripod flag pole that had to be about 20 feet high! The moon was full and the birds sang all night.

Noah and I really enjoyed the trip.

Scout Sunday - Very Nice

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

We celebrated Scout Sunday at St. Joseph’s today. At the 11:00AM Mass (Missa Cantata) we had 10 scouts and 4 adult leaders in the procession. Most of the boys were torchbearers (we’ve got only 8 torches). The candles throughout the congregation were an impressive sight during the Gospel and during the consecration. It was lovely.
