The Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting is committed to supporting Scouts of all ages be an active and visible part of a parish's comprehensive youth ministry strategy.  For help with chartering a BSA unit, American Heritage Girls Troop or for information about how to support a Girl Scout Troop, please contact Kyle Holtgrave at (217) 698-8500 x. 154.

Catholic Chartered BSA Units in the diocese:

  • 2014: 57 units, 1251 youth members, 537 adult members
  • 2015: 59 units, 1569 youth members, 595 adult members
  • 2016: 57 units, 1492 youth members, 601 adult members
  • 2017: 52 units, 1105 youth members, 484 adult members

In 2017, BSA units chartered by the Knights of Columbus were instructed to move to a local parish instead. There were 15 units in the diocese effected by this change. As of summer 2017, all but 4 of those units successfully found homes in a  parish and are still on our roster.
