American Heritage Girls A New Group for Girls

American Heritage Girls is a Christian program that is dedicated to its mission of building american-heritage-girls-logowomen of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country. AHG programs focuses on six program emphases: Life Skill Enhancement, Girl Leadership, Teamwork, Character Development, Social Development and Spiritual Development. AHG Troop SC0490 is for girls ages 5 to 18. We will be having our first meeting April 21 in the Family Center from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
Below is a list of meeting dates to follow.
May 19 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
June 16 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
July 14 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
August 11 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

There are five Program Levels in American Heritage Girls. Troops may offer all five Levels, if there are girls and Leaders available for each. However, it is common for new Troops to begin with only a few Levels.

AHG’s multi-Level structure means that girls from all Program Levels meet together as a single Troop at the same time, though they may split into Levels for certain activities.

Pathfinder – Ages 5-6
The Pathfinder Level is intended to give a girl a chance to try out the AHG Program and learn more about it. A Pathfinder girl earns necklace beads for attendance, participation and Bible verse memorization while learning the four parts of the AHG Oath. She may earn the Fanny Crosby Award upon completion of this Level.

Tenderheart – Ages 6-9
A Tenderheart earns Badges and Sports Pins in any of the six Frontiers of Skill and receives activity patches for participating in Troop activities or special events. She may earn the Sacagawea Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Blue Service Stars are awarded for every 5 hours of community service.

Explorer – Ages 9-12

She may earn the Lewis and Clark Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Red Service Stars are awarded for every 10 hours of community service. Explorers are allowed to participate in overnight camping events. landclarkaward.jpg__150x150_q85_crop_subsampling-2_upscale

White Service Stars are awarded for every 15 hours of community service. A Pioneer is also eligible for the roles of Camp or Event Aide. The Pioneer Level is where girls really begin to show leadership skills by assisting their leaders with planning, organizing and staffing special events for AHG in the community or within their Troop.

She may earn the Dolley Madison Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Yellow Service Stars are awarded for every 20 hours of community service.

Trail Life USA A New Group for Boys

logo Trail Life USA is a Christian Outdoor adventure program that focuses on out door            adventure, character, and leader ship development. Troop SC-0490 is a
newly chartered group here at St. Anthony’s. Trail Life is for boys in grades 5k (kindergarten) thru 12th grade.

Trail Life USA (TLUSA) is a Christian Outdoor adventure program that emphasizes and teaches biblical moral values and requires all adult members to agree with, sign, and abide by the Trail Life USA Trinitarian Statement of Faith and the Statement of Values. The program is unapologetically Christian. However, the program is designed and intended to be presented without being “churchy” or “religious,” focusing on outdoor adventure, character, and leadership development. The analogy for this principle has been referred to as “carrot cake.” The carrots in the cake are not in big and obvious chunks, but are still present throughout the entire cake, as are the assumptions of a Christian worldview throughout the entire program. At the same time, the TLUSA program is not intended to replace or compete with other youth groups, Bible studies, or church programs, but rather to complement them and give youth an opportunity to exemplify and demonstrate Christian values in their relationships with others.

The morals and values of our country are deteriorating at an exponential rate and are becoming increasingly opposed to true Christian values. As our organization grows and matures, future challenges will require increased character and courage by both adult and youth members as they stand for the timeless values articulated in the TLUSA Statement of Faith and Statement of Values which originate from the Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Church. With this cultural pressure in mind, we will continually commit ourselves to the truths found in the scriptures, that we are to fear God and not man, and that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and understanding.

TLUSA is a program focused on turning boys into godly men. Our firm conviction is that this can only be done by allowing a boy the opportunity to interact, work with, and be mentored by and with other Christian men. Women can serve in a number of roles in the organization including the National Board of Directors, National Advisory Board, Regional Leadership, Area Leadership, Troop Committee members, and even as the Charter Organization Representative (COR). However, other than in the Woodlands Trail program for younger boys 5-10 years old, adult leaders in positions of direct contact to boys must be male. at the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and understanding.

Right To Life Meeting

Several years ago, St. Anthony began the Respect for Life Committee raising awareness of the threat that faces life at all stages, especially the unborn. It is time to move the needle and reform this committee to a responsive action organization. The committee meets the second Friday of each month  at 7:00 pm at the Family Center in classroom A. Together we will outline and form the direction of the organization bringing our Christian witness of life to our parish, community and state. You will be able to provide your input and participate to the level you desire.

Let us embrace the Church’s teachings which guide us in God’s love to support and protect His creation. Let’s come together to love our neighbor and make St. Anthony a home away from home!
