Since our last update (November 2013), three of our groups have been formally installed. First, our El Camino Real group in Oceanside, California was installed by our founder and general commissioner Paul Ritchi in February.
Second, our Northern Lights group in Madison, Wisconsin was installed in March, also by our general commissioner.
Last but surely not least, our group in Sacramento, California was installed by our national religious adviser Fr. Hugues Beaugrand.
In addition to the above, we have also been able to expand into the following areas: Portland, Maine; Houston, Texas; Niagara Falls, New York; Charles Town, West Virginia; and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We now have 15 groups in North America, with a few others still in development.
We were also able to publish the first issue of what we hope will be our quarterly newsletter, The Explorer, with articles from Fr. Beaugrand, our founder and general commissioner Paul Ritchi, and Sr. Grey Fox (one of the leaders in our Mount Monadnock group in New Hamphire), among others. Please do check it out!
Finally, another of our St. Katharine Drexel girl Explorers received her promise cross.
