Our troop is sponsored by a Catholic Church and we went with the Feb 2
date. We have communion every Sunday. It was explained to me that many
Protestant/Methodist churches have communion on the first Sunday of the
month and therefore do not want a long service to become a "three ring
circus" by adding Scouts and Awards Presentations to the mixture. This is
the main reason for two dates. Scheduling and planning make for a Quality
program whether in Scouts or in the Worship of God.
May God Bless!
