2014 Scouting Retrest

On October 18-19, 2014, we had the Catholic Scout Retreat at Holy Family School in Malone and on Sunday we celebrated the Bishop’s Scout Mass at Notre Dame Church of Malone. We learned the skills of the game from an Olympic Curling Coach, worked on a community service project, explored the type of vocations people can live out, learned about Ham Radio Operation, St. Isaac Jogues, and earned a patch for attending.

Mountain Mass Owls Head

On August 10, 2014 we had a hike with a Mass on Owl’s Head. We met at the parking lot of St. Joseph's Oratory in Owls Head, NY, to depart to the trail head. The Oratory is located 11 miles south of Malone. The 3-mile trail leads to an isolated summit with views to the north of Indian Lake and into Canada.  Photos.
