The Archdiocese of Portland and the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting have been recognized by the National Committee on Catholic Scouting as a Quality Diocese in 2013. This is the fourth consecutive year the Archdiocese of Portland has been so recognized.
This award recognizes those dioceses in the United States that promote and achieve a quality Catholic Scouting program. It is an opportunity for the NCCS to salute those dioceses who truly deliver exceptional programs to youth members at all levels of scouting. Quality programs for youth are what the NCCS continually seeks, and is committed to supporting this goal. When a diocese earns this award, it makes a statement that they have provided their youth members with the highest quality program experience possible.
The Archdiocese of Portland Catholic Committee on Scouting serves youth and their leaders who participate in the Boy Scouts of America, American Heritage Girls, Girl Scouts of America, Campfire Girls and Catholic Daughters of America. Today there are over 50 units throughout western Oregon sponsored by Catholic parishes, schools and Knights of Columbus Council.
In 2013, the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting hosted adult training, youth retreats and supported the creation of new units throughout the area. On January 26, 2014, Archbishop Alexander K. Sample will recognize 78 Catholic youth from 31 parishes with the various scout religious emblems earned this past year. “Scouting is a significant component of comprehensive Catholic Youth Ministry,” said Deacon Thomas W. Gornick, Archdiocesan Scout Chaplain.  “We are very proud of the outstanding work by the volunteers on our Catholic Scouting committee.”
