Scouting is an effective way to help Catholic youth to do their duty to God
and to their country. Scouting builds character and teaches devotion to God in an
environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models.
The Scouting program provides a wonderful channel to involve youth in the life of Catholic parishes.



The Diocesan Youth Retreat (DYR) is an annual summer retreat hosted by the
Diocese of San Jose’s Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries where teens
will be empowered to live fully the gospel of Jesus Christ,
develop their Catholic identity and instill a zeal for the New Evangelization.

The popular Diocesan Youth Retreat has been brought to Middle School
in efforts to encounter and form young disciples in Christ.
