Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Catholic Church Sponsored Units
Catholic Church Sponsored Units
Sun, 1 Nov 1998 21:05:39 -0500
We have started a new troop sponsored by a Catholic Church. I have heard
that they (Catholic Church) are requiring background checks for adults
working in their youth programs.
Does this include Scout Units?
The local church seems to be avoiding the issue. They do not know the
answer. They figure if they do not ask, then they do not have to do it. I
do not want the unit to get into trouble down the road if a situation
My understanding that this policy is fairly new.
What have other Catholic Church sponsored units done?
The church also sponsors a Pack. But the discussion started when the new
troop was formed.
Thanks ahead of time for you input.
