Feedback from the Romantic Revolutions:

From the teen girls:
-I loved this retreat! It was fun and full of non-stop activities. I think that young people will choose to become chaste.
-I thought it was really fun since it was explained really well.  I learned that chastity is a better way to live.
-I liked it a lot. I can actually use the information in real life
-It was awesome. I learned a little about chastity in school but I learned a lot here.
-I always love hearing real life stories so I loved the talks.
-It made me think about how I act with guys.
-I liked the modesty talk from Chris (the guy on the team).
-I thought it was great. I really like the talks. I will always remember to believe in myself.
-I thought about how much I need God in all my relationships.
-I learned God has more meaning to me than a guy can treat me.

From the moms & troop leaders:
-I have to let you know the best part of the day was our drive home (approx. 35 minutes), my daughter and I had some great conversations about chastity, God, boys, school and choices!  Here's to keeping the talking going and to continuing the "Romantic Revolution."
-Covered a range of very appropriate topics that were presented at a level that all the girls could easily understand.
-The talks from the teens were most memorable for me.
-I especially liked the male perspective on how men/boys view women.
-Excellent - right mix of talks and mixers and activities.
-Yes, (I grew closer to God) by seeing how one little event may change the future of even one girl and how the word of chastity can be spread so easily and quickly.

St. George Trek 2015

The St. George Trek, sponsored by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, is a biennial high adventure Catholic leadership program at Philmont Scout Ranch located in the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains in Cimarron, New Mexico.

July 8 - July 23, 2015

The St. George Trek, sponsored by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, is a biennial high adventure Catholic leadership program at Philmont Scout Ranch located in the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains in Cimarron, New Mexico.  Only selected Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members get to attend the national two-week faith-filled hiking adventure, as each diocese in the United States is allowed to send only two participants each.  This year, Thomas was the only participant from the Archdiocese of St. Louis and was sponsored in full by the generosity of a Catholic Committee on Scouting member.  For the next Trek in 2015, the NCCS has already granted the Archdiocese of St. Louis two full-ride scholarships for our selected participants!  If you know of anyone that would be interested in attending in 2015, have them contact the Office of Catholic Scouting.

 Attached bellow is the application for the 2015 St. George Trek.

Here is Thomas Hogan's full story in the St. Louis Review>>> Witnessing the 'Grandeur of God'.
