Scouts - The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10 and 14 years. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 15 years old. 

Information regarding local activities can be found at the Oldham Scouts website with further details at ScoutBase UK the official website of the Scout Association

If your child is interested in joining these activities, initial enquiries should be made to Michaela or Stephen Exton.


Parents are invited to join the CBS support group, raising funds for the various activities, lending assistance when necessary and providing refreshments after the 11.30am Mass about once a month.


Church Parade will be on the FIRST Sunday of each month

After much consideration and discussion with the leaders of the other sections, it has been decided that from 1st November 2010  both Brownies and Guides will start at 6:00pm and finish at 7:30pm.
There are a number of reasons why the change has become necessary and the decision has not been taken lightly.  It is hoped that the changes will not adversely affect you, but if you have any problems please do not hesitate to speak to us.
