About Us

The purpose of the Diocese of Dallas Catholic Committee on Scouting (DDCCS) is to give guidance, vitality, and leadership in the spiritual phase of Scouting to all Catholic scouts and scouters of the diocese. The committee endeavors to make the entire Scouting program available to increasing numbers of youth in parish units and in units operated by Catholic organizations. The agenda of the Catholic committee supplements the program of the Boy Scouts of America, with special instructions and activities, in the spiritual phase of Scouting as it relates to Catholics.

Each year the Committee holds several events to promote Catholic Scouting. These events include a Boy Scout Religious Retreat, Cub Scout Retreat, Youth Religious Emblem Recognition Ceremony, Religious Emblems Counselor Training, and Adult Recognition Dinner. We are able to accomplish these events because of the many dedicated volunteers that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program.

The Diocese of Dallas Catholic Committee on Scouting serves portions of Circle 10 Council and the NeTseO Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Committee promotes Duty to God at each level of Scouting. We're affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, and Region 10 of the NCCS.


Have Your Scouts Worked on Any Religious Awards?

Boy Scout Religious Awards

If your scout has completed their work for Ad Altare Dei or Pope Puis XII and needs a Board of Review, the committee will be holding Boards at St Rita and St Monica Parishes in Dallas.

This gives everyone enough time to re-present the awards at your home parish on Scout Sunday.   Please contact Mrs. Isabel Brown to sign up for a Board of Review at IsabelgBrown@sbcglobal.net  

Cub Scout Religious Awards
If you are completing a Cub Scout Award, Light of Christ or Parvuli Dei, contact Mrs. Carel Alquiza at carelalquiza@gmail.com
