Diocese of Ogdensburg

The Roman Catholic Church in Northern New York


DCCS - LogoThe purpose of the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting of the Diocese of Ogdensburg is to give guidance, vitality, and leadership in the spiritual phase of Scouting to all Catholic Scouts and Scouters of the Diocese.

The Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting (DCCS) also endeavors to help parishes and other Catholic organizations support the Scouting program on the local level.

The agenda of the DCCS supplements the programs of the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS) and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), with special instructions and activities, that includes an Annual Retreat and Bishop's Scout Gathering Mass for the presentation of youth and adult religious emblems, awards, and most of all to aid in the physical, ethical, and spiritual development of Scouting members as it relates to Roman Catholics.

For information on the various awards and programs, and for diocesan program information to order books & awards contact Cory Haynes at 518-856-9656.
