Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts:

The Boy Scouts of America is a youth program focused on character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness through age-appropriate activities involving fun & games, opportunities for leadership, learning ethical values, involvement in community service, and learning & practicing outdoor skills.

St. Jude has a vibrant and active Scouting program and sponsors a Cub Scout Pack (1st-5th grade) and a Boy Scout Troop (6th grade - age 18). The Pack typically meets once a month on Tuesday evenings, with additional meetings scheduled more often by grade. The Troop generally meets twice a month on Sunday afternoons, in addition to monthly outdoor activities such as campouts.

The Girl Scout organization is dedicated to girls and in an accepting and nurturing environment, helps them build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed parent volunteers, our girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives: leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction. The goal of the St. Jude Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette program is to engage girls in discovering self, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.

Little Flowers Girls Club

The Little Flowers Girls' Club is a Catholic club for girls ages 5 and up that teaches virtues through scripture, saints' biographies and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Based on the 1906 Catholic classic "The Catholic Girls' Guide" by Fr. F.X. Lasance, and the spirituality of St. Therese, the Little Flower of Liseux, this beautiful, authentically Catholic program, has delighted and instilled in our girls a love of our Catholic Faith for nearly 20 years.
