Salvation Army Angel Project - Gift Selection

December 1 - 14, 2019

It's time for our Annual Angel Tree Service Project

This has been a great service project for us for many years as we have partnered with the Salvation Army to take some of the families that don't make it to their angel tree.

We very much hope that families will select an Angel online or Monday during the Troop Meeting.


Recent News
Attention Adult Leaders

Blessed Sacrament and JFK School must stay in compliance for the diocesan child protection policy by adult volunteers attending this free workshop. The Virtus Training is a newer program that was started in 2017. If you took the training before then, you must take the new training course to be in compliance, but only need to take it once!! 

To check if you need to take the training, log into your virtus.org account. If you don't have an account, or need to register you will first set up a free personal account with VIRTUS!

Additionally, the Diocese requires all volunteers to be fingerprinted and have both BCI and FBI background checks done once. Fingerprinting reports need to be newer than April 1st of 2015. The cost of the fingerprinting and background checks is $37. Please let us know if the cost is an issue for your family. There are funds available through the troop should your family need assistance.

The reports should be sent to Blessed Sacrament Parish at 3020 Reeves Rd., Warren, OH 44483 Attn: Brenda Antenucci

You must register for a session through the VIRTUS website at virtusonline.org.

From the homepage, click first-time registrant and create your own account. To find nearby sessions, select Youngstown (Diocese) from the 'View a list of sessions' and they will pop up.

Seven Ranges Campout

This weekend the Troop took a trip over to Seven Ranges. There they practiced Fire Building, Knots, and Lashings. The weather was cool, but everyone stayed warm and had a good time. Four Webelos joined us, and we thank them for coming and look forward to seeing them again.

We even had a young Lab wonder into camp and have fun with our Troop the whole day.

Saturday, we wrapped up the evening with our Annual Thanksgiving Feast, as well as a fantastic Campfire program. Looking forward to the next camping trip in January, and the Holiday Party next month.

Photos from the Troop Halloween party can be found in the Gallery. Be sure to check them out!

Beaver Creek 

The Troop Returns from another camping trip, this time from Beaver Creek State Park.

Yes, this may be in the top 10 most haunted places in Ohio, but they weren't afraid of the ghosts... well, most weren't.

There were Knots, Lashings, Compass games, Deer Stalker and more. Photos from the trip can be found in the Troop Photo Gallery. Be sure to check them out!

Welcome, New Families! 
Keep Informed About the Exciting Opportunities Available to Your New Scout! 

Welcome to Troop 101! As you can tell already, we're a very active organization and the need to communicate to our scouts and families is essential.

To help you and your scout, we regularly post all of our events on this website.

Sign up for access. Log in or Register in the Upper right corner of this "Home Page."
Then click the arrows to expand the windows. When you do, you'll notice the "weather" tab and "are you going" tabs on the right as well as a suggested "packing list" for your scout.
Now scroll to the "Program Tools" and click on the "Calendar." Scroll to the bottom right corner and click on the "+Google Calendar" tab on the bottom to link our calendar to yours. Now you'll always know what's going on with the troop.

You can return to the home page at any time by clicking the Troop Logo, top Left.

Now that you have the basics down, venture around the site, and see all that's available to you and your scout.

Remember to remind your scout it is his responsibility to stay informed and keep informed as we're here to help him to grow into an independent and self sufficient young leader in a safe learning environment. His Patrol Leader is his guide and mentor. Remind your scout to find him first with any questions he may have because his Patrol Leader knows EVERYTHING!

Again, Welcome!
