St. Philip the Apostle School Student Earns Eagle Scout Ranking

St. Philip the Apostle Boy Scout Troop 131 is pleased to announce that Luke Sugiyama has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Eagle Scout is the highest achievement of rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America.

Luke’s Eagle Scout Service Project involved repurposing a storage room as a classroom for the after-school program at Door of Hope in Pasadena. The room was cleaned, painted, refurnished and updated to provide an inviting and interactive space for reading, studying and activities of children of resident families for many years to come. Door of Hope is a nonprofit organization with the mission of equipping homeless children and their families with skills, resources and support to rebuild their lives and permanently end their cycle of homelessness.

Boy Scout Troop 131 is a Parish Ministry at St. Philip the Apostle Church and membership is open to all Boys in the Parish Community.
