  1. Saw where the Rockford Diocese has severed ties.
  2. Most charge $25/MB so that would be $250000 in revenue....Criminal GTA certainly applies to every one of these MBs.
  3. I was just wondering how many are still meeting at their old UMC churches (FUA) how many were able to find new sponsors how many are sponsored by their council how many unfortunately folded
  4. Any feedback on how this went or is going in your local councils?
  5. Let me say you have been extremely blessed in how your girl troop has worked out for you. I'm not sure that others have been so fortunate just struggling to get leaders. It does make one wonder why the GSA couldn't figure out how to make their program more supportive of what the girls want. Of course my answer is because they didn't want to.
  6. Okay….Cub Scout RANK requirements absolutely cannot be used for Boy Scout RANK requirements.
  7. The only one of the top of my head is that cooking rank requirements cannot be used for cooking mb. Also cub scouts requirements cannot be used for any boy scout requirements
  8. Girls account for 15% of all youth which is up from 9% 2 years ago. This could mean more boys left the program. Total membership is still down 13% from 2 years ago So adding girls would appear to have kept membership from being a worst disaster. Two observations I have heard are the blanket extension was solely for the purpose of Eagle Scout and not fair to the boys and every picture you see of a girl Eagle Scout has a full sash of MBs making some wonder what else the girl was doing other than scouts. A full sash would mean a MB every 2 weeks.
  9. Any others heard any more on this subject? My friend told me his Bishop is staying with chartering scout units.
  10. Unfortunately the politics won on establishing this MB as an Eagle required vice adding a section to each rank requirement. My guess that if it wasn't Eagle Required it would fall behind Bugling in popularity. These requirements should be taught by the scout's parents/guardians. My friend did a session and the feedback from the scouts was "this stuff is so obvious to us" This tells me his program is working.
  11. I believe the Key 3 can add some of any missing training in myscouting through the Training Manager
  12. This is from the USCCB website: Our mission is to support the ministry of bishops with an emphasis on evangelization, by which the bishops exercise in a communal and collegial manner certain pastoral functions entrusted to them by the Lord Jesus of sanctifying, teaching, and governing (see Lumen gentium, no. 21). Our purposes under civil law are: to unify, coordinate, encourage, promote and carry on Catholic activities in the United States; to organize and conduct religious, charitable and social welfare work at home and abroad; to aid in educ
  13. My guess is that if the USSCB could/wanted to eliminate Catholic scouting they would have done so already but I believe the Catholic Church supports scouting even if a few dioceses and other individual Pastors do not. Not all Catholic. Churches have the wherewithal to have scouting or even youth groups due to their size and volunteer populations. JMHO
  14. @5thGenTexan Probably right. My thought is that a church that leaves the UMC probably would not have entered any agreement option. Wonder how this is all playing out with the units since it all has to be done by 12/31. How many have the FUA and new chartered partners will have FUA and the councils sponsor just totally get away from any relationship from the UMC and get sponsored by a completely different organization or fold as it's all too hard.
