Scout Sunday at St. Stephen’s Church

Scouts and leaders of Unit 305 in Kearny volunteered in the misty rain early Sunday morning, September 9, 2018, to place 300 U.S. flags around the walkways of St. Stephen’s Church. The Scouts participate in this community service project annually to help their sponsoring church prepare for their 9/11 memorial. After the flag placement, Unit 305 participated in the annual Scout Sunday Mass at 10 a.m. Scouts led the entrance procession of colors, assisted in the Mass as altar servers, presented the Gifts, and joined in the recessional. The Very Reverend Joseph A. Mancini, K.C.H.S., V.F., supports the Scout Sunday activities in his role as Pastor of St. Stephen's Church and Sponsor of Unit 305.
