Deus et Civitas Mea (God and My Community) guides Catholic Pioneers to examine service in their community through Sacred Scripture and Catholic Church Tradition. Girls learn the importance of preparing to serve through prayer and learning about people who exemplified service in their lives. Pioneers put what they have learned into practice by serving others and by reflecting on the impact of their service.
The adult guide can be found in the God and My Community workbook (page 3). Adult mentors must be GHACCYO trained.
