Youth Celebrate Scout Sunday


In the 1940’s, Scout Sunday was established to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out their "Duty to God" pledged each week. The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8 and Scout Sunday is now held on the Sunday preceding the anniversary while the Saturday following Feb. 8 is Scout Sabbath.

Scouts in the Greater St. Louis Area Council celebrated Scout Sunday and Scout Sabbath on Feb. 2 and 7, respectively.

The Scout Law says that a "Scout is Reverent" and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their "Duty to God". These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.

Scout Sabbath held at United Hebrew Congregation in St. Louis.

Scout Sunday held at Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.
