"A Scout is Reverent."
"Duty to God."
More than just phrases found in Scouting, these are words our Scouts strive to live by on a daily basis.
To help them grow in their faith, Catholic Scouts have four Religious Emblem programs available for them to earn.
Scouts can earn:
Light of Christ - Designed for 6-7 year old Cub Scouts
Parvuli Dei -Designed for 8-10 year old Cub Scouts
Ad Altare Dei - Must be 13 years old at beginning of program. Designed for Boy Scouts and Male/Female Venture Crew Members.
Pope Pius XII - Must be 15 years old at beginning of program. Designed for Male/Female Venture Crew Members and Boy Scouts.
By earning any of the Religious Emblems, the scout is also entitled to wear the BSA Youth Religious Knot. Only 1 knot is sewn on scout uniform, no matter how many Religious Emblems he/she earns.
Registered Catholic adults are entitled to wear the BSA Adult Religious Knot if they receive the St. George Emblem.
