Boy Scouts – Ad Altare Dei Program
The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) program is to help Catholic Scouts of the Roman Rite develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community. The program is organized in chapters based on the seven Sacraments. The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth. We will post when this program becomes available.
Girl Scouts – Marian Medal Program
The Marian Medal program is written for young Catholics, ages 12-15, to enable them to “proclaim the greatness of the Lord.” This is accomplished by actively involving the participants in an understanding of Mary as a model of openness and spirituality—a woman of the church. Through various projects, discussions, and liturgical celebrations over a period of months, the participants are provided with a unique opportunity to develop new insights into their personalities, friends, parents, and the world around them. We will post when this program becomes available.
Religious Awards for Scouts
This program is offered as part of the catechetical program of the Church. In earning awards, scouts explore faith in relationship to church, family and friends in a scouting context. Awards are earned by completing projects outlined in awards booklets, available for each award. We will post when this program is available.
