Are you looking for an organization that helps instill in your daughters the values of their faith and service to others? American Heritage Girls (AHG) is a Christ-centered character development ministry for girls ages 5-18. Girls in an AHG troop are encouraged to become servant leaders through participating in service projects for the church and community, accomplish badge work that emphasizes life skills and take part in fun team-building outdoor adventures such as archery, hiking, and camping.

Cathedral of the Risen Christ has formed a new troop, AHGTroop2017. Come be a part of AHG's Mission to build women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country. Our troop has openings in all grades. We have 30+ members right now K-9th and are continuing to grow!

Our meetings will be held on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of every month in the Cathedral of the Risen Christ School. To find more information and to sign up for information, please visit and request information on our group using your zip code. You will then receive an email from AHGConnect to register.
