Family of God
Family of God is the official religious recognition program of the Roman Catholic Church for children in grades 2-3 who are enrolled in the Girl Scouts, Camp Fire, and other Catholic youth organizations.
Family of God is a bilingual activity series developed to complement the catechetical efforts of the parish and families with children in the second and third grades. Revised and transliterated into Spanish in July 2004, the program helps children discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their family and parish.

God is Love
God is Love is the official religious recognition program of the Roman Catholic Church for children in grades K-1 who are enrolled in the Girl Scouts, Camp Fire, and other Catholic youth organizations.
God is Love is developed for use with children in kindergarten and first grades. The program helps children discover an appreciation that God created, cares for, and loves us all.
I Live My Faith
The I Live My Faith program is designed to help Girl Scouts and Camp Fire members, grades 4-6, appreciate more deeply the place that God and religion occupy in their daily lives. The program is structured on the Catechism of the Catholic Church with the themes of: Belief, Sacraments, Catholic Christian Living, and Prayer. Each theme provides a variety of opportunities for young people to explore the Catholic faith including art, technology, research, drama, and prayer.
Within each chapter, the youth are challenged to Discover, Learn, and Connect Catholic Church teaching to their lives while incorporating Prayer throughout the process. I Live My Faith complements and supports the more formal religious education provided in Catholic schools and parish programs.
Mary, the First Disciple
The Marian Medal program is written for young Catholics, grades 7-10, to enable them to "proclaim the greatness of the Lord." This is accomplished by actively involving the participants in an understanding of Mary as a model of openness and spirituality—a woman of the church.
Through various projects, discussions, and liturgical celebrations over a period of months, the participants are provided with a unique opportunity to develop new insights into their personalities, friends, parents, and the world around them.
