Catholic Scouting

Diocese of Austin Catholic Committee on Scouting

The purpose of the Diocese of Austin Catholic Committee on Scouting (DCCS) is to provide Catholic Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and members of other similar organizations continued education in the Catholic faith and support the growth of Catholic scouting units in these organizations.

Youth are invited to earn age-appropriate religious emblems by completing a formation program including a workbook. Upon completion of the program they are invited to attend a Recognition Mass and recieve their emblem from the bishop. We also host a variety of events throughout the year including retreats, Rosary Patches, Footsteps of the Saints programs and other religious activites.
