Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts Program is girl-driven, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interest of today's girls. Girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal-setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment.

Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere--where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls ages 5-17; women and men over 17 can join as adult members. Saint Brendan has troops at every level, Daisy (Kindergarten) - Cadette (6 - 8th grades)

Youth Ministry

St. Brendan's Youth Ministry group is open to all parish youth in grades 6-8. The group is facilitated by parent volunteers during monthly activities following Youth Mass. Additionally, St. Brenda School 6th - 8th grade students have a monthly Youth Ministry session during the school day.

Through fun faith and community building activities the Youth Ministry group strives to:

  • draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of St. Brendan faith-community;
  • empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; and
  • foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
