As a ministry to youth and families, Scouting offers opportunities for learning new skills, serving others, developing leadership skills, and growing in faith. Nativity of Mary is the charter partner for Cub Scout Pack 374 and Boy Scout Troop 374, as well as a home and meeting place for Girl Scout Troops of all ages. The relationship between the Scout groups and the Nativity of Mary community is characterized by service. Over the years, Scouts have organized food and item drives as well as a variety of maintenance and upkeep projects to benefit our parish and the larger community. Every Scout (boy or girl) is encouraged to earn the religious emblem for his or her age level, beginning in grade 1 and continuing through high school.
