The Stealth Ninjas Prepare for Advent

The Webelos Den completed an achievement for their Craftsman badge last weekend, and celebrated the first Sunday of Advent by creating advent wreaths for their own family tables.
The boys learned about type of saws and their usage.  The Scouts cut precise wood components using nothing more than a stick of wood, a mitre box, a hand saw, and a whole lot of muscle. The boys then assembled the pieces to create a wooden wreath. Some choose to stain their wreath, and others choose a natural wood. All Scouts will use their creation to help prepare their hearts for the coming of Jesus this season.

Catholic Events

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday!

Moving right along to the Christmas season, the Diocese of Orange Scouting Committee is offering a Cub Advent Day next Saturday.  It is run like a day-camp, with activities and crafts centered around the meaning of Advent and the birth of Christ.  Adult leaders and Boy Scouts will coordinate the event, and parents are welcome (but not required) to stay and participate.  Here are some details:

LOCATION: St. Bonaventure Catholic Parish, 16400 Springdale Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92649

DATE: Saturday, December 1, 2012

TIME: 8:30 am – 3:00 pm (9:00 am start)

COST: $15.00 per Scout, includes crafts, snacks and a cool patch.

RSVP: By Thursday, November 29, 2012. Tickets are available online at:  http://www.occatholicscouting.org/

For further information, contact Dani DeGrood at degrood@wwdb.org.

Also, our new bishop, Kevin Vann, will be formally installed at a ceremony on Monday, December 10, at 2:00, at the Bren Events Center on the UCI campus.  Bishop Vann is a great supporter of Scouting and is welcoming Scouts to attend the ceremony in uniform.  Unfortunately, the day and time are not convenient for most students and parents.  However, if you and your Scout would like to attend, please let me know and I will let you know where to meet.

Finally, I would like to again congratulate the Cubs and Webelos who earned their religious emblems, and thank the parents for supporting our Catholic Scouting program at Pack 811.  We continue to build an incredibly strong “Fun With A Purpose” program for our boys.
