Our parish supports Girl Scouts of all levels from Daisies through Ambassadors. What makes parish scouts different is that we have a focus on our faith and incorporate it into the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Our leaders have all the clearances and trainings required by the Archdiocese, along with the Girl Scout ones. Many troops and girls have worked on and earned local and national Catholic Girl Scout Religious Programs and have been awarded medals and recognition at the Archdiocese’s annual Mass through the Office of Youth and Young Adults - Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and Campfire Girls. Catholic Girl Scouting is celebrated each March at the Girl Scout Sunday Mass. All Girl Scouts from the parish are invited to participate whether they are in our St. Isidore Parish Troops or a Quakertown Community troop.
Troops generally meet on site at either the St. Isidore School or the Youth Center on various nights. Parish troops are involved in the parish in many ways, for example helping to clean up the grounds, babysitting for the PAPA meetings at the school, securing donations for the Food Pantry, sending care packages to our soldiers, and other areas as the need arises or we are asked. We also do all of the other things most Girl Scout troops do!

We do service such as helping clean church/grounds, babysitting, food drives for the food bank and assisting with parish events (bonfire, visiting speakers, etc)
We offer GS cookies for sale in Feb & usually have a hoagie sale around Halloween & a mum sale in the Fall too.
Liz is a good contact for families looking to have their daughter join scouts as she is a Service Unit Manager for our area. Liz also participate in the Parish meetings held by Father. I can be contacted for medal & patch programs.
Liz can you get whatever contact info you'd like to Jennie? And anything else you'd like to add?
If there is interest from girls & adults willing to get the training and clearances we could have Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors too.
Liz and Mary Ann Hamrick are more active with troops, I am on the committee for Catholic GS and offer medal & patch programs for any parish scouts regardless of troop affiliation. We also organize GS Sunday in March, again for all parish girls no matter
