Mission and Purpose
The Mission of the Knoxville Catholic Committee on Scouting (KDCCS) is to give guidance, vitality and leadership in the spiritual phase of Scouting to all Catholic Scouts and Scouters of the Diocese of Knoxville. The purpose of the KDCCS is to promote the constructive use of the program of the Boy Scouts of America, the Girl Scouts of America, and the American Heritage Girls as a viable form of youth ministry for the Catholic youth of our diocese among its clergy, youth ministers, and directors of religious education.
The committee advises Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and American Heritage Girls, and seeks to sustain and strengthen the relationship between the local BSA councils, the local GS council, and the local AHG organization with the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Knoxville.
The KDCCS will monitor and provide qualified counselors to administer the Catholic Religious Emblems Program. The Committee will ensure the nomination of Catholic Adult Religious Awards annually within the diocese. The KDCCS will also actively promote the Religious Emblems Program to all Scouts and Scouters of other faith traditions within the diocese.
