This workshop will provide an opportunity for its members to not only meet together as friends in the Catholic Church, but also further links the Catholic Church and the Scouting Movement from all over the world. From the Catholic faith point of view, it develops and enhances the spiritual dimension of Scouting in the World Scout Movement. Hundreds of youth and adults have attended this workshop over the years.
The International Awareness Workshop also offers an excellent chance for participants to meet some or all of the requirements for earning the Religious Activity Award for the International Awareness in the Catholic Church for all ages of both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts programs.
This is a great chance to meet priests, deacons, religious sisters and lay people who have been involved with missionary work, vocations, World Youth Day, and International Scouting events. Patches, pins, and medals will be available for purchase.
