The PLC would like your feedback on how you think your patrol would function most effectively - as is, or merged with another unit. Please take a moment to give us your feedback.

Please complete and return the required forms for volunteers and participants

Attached please find some forms that the diocese has asked parents and volunteers to complete. Descriptions are below. Please complete and return the appropriate forms to Mr. Scheeler.
Adults, please be sure your Youth Protection Training (also required for adult volunteers) is current.
The first document is the “Arlington Diocese Waiver Youth Ministry”. This is an additional document, created in response to COVID-19, that parents must complete for every youth participating in a Scouting organization this year. Parents must complete one form for regular events and an additional form for every special event.

Then, there is the “Parish Volunteer Release of Liability Form” that every volunteer must sign, including Scouting leadership.
