Troops of St. George

We are in the process of starting a chapter, here at St. Max, of Troops of St. George.

To do this we need a minimum of 6 father's and 6 son's ages 6-18 to begin our charter.

The Troops of St. George is Catholic Scouting. 


The Troops of Saint George is a fraternal Catholic nonprofit apostolate for priests, men, and young men looking for a life of adventure coupled with virtue. Initially founded in 2013 by Catholic author and professor Dr. Taylor Marshall we have become a collection of troops that do the following:

 -experience reverent and beautiful Masses on mountaintop vistas

 -pray the Rosary with other men around fire pits in the freezing cold

 -catch a Fish Friday meal by fly fishing for trout

 -go to confession with our priests while kneeling on moss in the woods

 -teach our sons archery, rockclimbing, marksmanship, fishing, survival skills…and Catholic virtues

 -foster a love for the priesthood and a reverence for the sacrament of Matrimony

 -support our local parish, our priests, our bishops, and community by being available for works of mercy and service



"The Troops of Saint George apostolate aims to use the outdoors as our canvas and the sacraments as our path to light the way for the formation of Holy Catholic men and boys. Whether called to the vocation of the priesthood, the religious life, or that of Holy fatherhood, our fathers and sons will take a prayerful pilgrimage together to fulfill Christ's desire for them to grow in virtue and in their Holy Catholic faith as they journey toward heaven."
- Saint George, Pray for us.

Our goal is to start this charter by the beginning of February.
