Mary, the First Disciple Retreat
Mary, the First Disciple is a religious recognition program for girls in 7th through 10th grades who are enrolled in the Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls, and other Catholic youth organizations. Through this program, participants learn more about Mary and how she is a role model for girls in the modern world.
Although a retreat has previously been held for girls interested in earning the Mary the First Disciple award, we don't currently have volunteer leadership to support this event for 2021. If you're interested in coordinating this retreat, please contact the committee at email@example.com
