CELEBRATING SPIRITUALITY AND FAITH

During this time ofuncertainty and physical distancing, Girl Scouts are  creating  unique , innovative, and safe ways to stay connected with each other and their community as they continue  their leadership journeys – including the exploration of their personal faith. Girl Scout  Cadette Troops  5366 and 6364  out of  St. Joachim Catholic School in Costa Mesa worked to bridge the physical divide by hosting a free Mother Teresa Patch Program workshop that was open to all K-12 Girl Scouts of all faiths. 

With the help of troop leaders Arlyn Shelton and Lorena Vega, Girl Scouts led online participants in activitie s that highlighte d the life of  Blessed Mother Teresa, an influential world figure and saint. Each Girl Scout chose a part of Mother Teresa’s life to present, and participating girls completed the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) Mother Teresa Patch Program.
