Boy Scouts of America

Catholic Religious Emblems Program

Duty to God and Duty to Country. These principles are the foundation on which the boy and girl scout programs are built. The primary mission of scouting is to inspire girls and boys with the highest ideals of character, conduct, patriotism, and service that they may become happy and resourceful citizens. The motivating force in Scouting is a spiritual one. The scout movement encourages boys, girls and adult members to become stronger in their own faith.

Emblem Programs

The four Roman Catholic emblem programs:
  • Light of Christ - for Tiger or Wolf Cub Scouts (requirements must be completed before start of 3rd grade)
  • Parvuli Dei - for Bear or Webelos Cub Scouts
  • Ad Altare Dei - for Boy Scouts (must have completed 6th grade)
  • Pope Pius XII - for Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers (must have started 9th grade)
