Do you want to help diocesan youths grow in their relationship with Christ? Do you have a background working with youth? Were you active as a scout and want to give back? Are you an active or past scout leader?
The Diocese of Davenport asks you to consider helping Catholic scouting in the diocese. An organizational meeting for the Catholic Committee on Scouting will be held Saturday, Feb. 15, at 9:30 a.m. at St. Patrick Parish in Iowa City. Last year Bishop Martin Amos appointed Father Ron Hodges (administrator of St. Mary Parish in Grinnell) as the committee’s chaplain and Dr. Tim Brown of St. Mary Parish in Solon as committee chair. The scope of the committee’s mission and plans for the upcoming year will be discussed. Planned activities include ensuring that the Catholic religious emblem program is active throughout the diocese by providing training, coordinating Catholic scouting retreats, identifying ways the committee can support current and new Catholic scouting units, coordinating a  Bishop’s Scout Mass for early 2015, and developing a communications plan.
The aim is to have a broad representation throughout the diocese on this committee. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend. If you have questions before the meeting, or are interested in joining the committee but not able to attend, contact Tim Brown at (319) 499-0510 or, or Fr. Hodges (
