Update 5/24/11


On May 7, 2011, The Diocesan Committee on Scouting held a training Day called Scouter

Development at the Sartell BSA Office. Trained and certified Emblem Instructors for the

Catholic emblems in the Diocese of St. Cloud are now available to youth, parents, and

Scoutmasters to assist their scouts in earning the Religious emblems. See the right hand

menu for the list of Certified Religious Emblems Counselors for the Diocese of St. Cloud.


Thank you to the Staff of the Scout Office for their gracious use of the facility and to Tim

Welch of the St. Cloud Diocese for training in learning enhancement with technology.



Yours in Catholic Scouting,


Marge Zylla
