Scouts Recognized …
February 9, 2023
There are various religious emblem programs available for Scouts to earn. Each emblem requires that a Scout obtain a manual for earning that emblem with the goal of completing requirements over the course of several weeks.
It is important to understand that religious emblems are not merely awards for completing a set of requirements. Instead, they recognize a young person’s growth in faith and how they live out their Catholic faith. The goal of religious emblems is to provide a structure where Scouts can grow in faith and apply what they learn to their everyday life.
