Light of Christ

The Light of Christ emblem (grades 1-2) encourages Tiger Cubs and Wolf Cub Scouts to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. With the active participation of the parent(s), we hope that the Scout will come to see Jesus as a real person and friend.

Parvuli Dei Emblem

The Parvuli Dei emblem (grades 3-4) is designed to help Bear and Webelos Cub Scouts become more aware of God's presence in their daily lives, especially in their homes and communities. The program works with the assistance of the Scout's parent(s).

Ad Altare Dei Emblem

The Ad Altare Dei emblem (grades 7-8) assists Boy Scouts of the Latin Rite to develop a fully Christian way of life in their faith communities. The program is organized in steps based on the seven Sacraments. Adherence to these Sacraments is a primary means of developing spiritual growth. The Scout is assisted in the program by an approved religious emblems counselor.

Pope Pius XII

The Pope Pius XII emblem (grade 9 - college) is for both Boy Scouts and Explorers. The program deals with Church-related ministries and vocations - avenues through which baptized persons commit themselves to serve humanity in obedience to God's call within our Catholic faith community. Boy Scouts and Explorers are assisted by an approved religious emblem's moderator.

St. George Emblem

The St. George emblem to recognizes the adult recipient's outstanding contribution to the spiritual development of Catholic youth in the program of the Boy Scouts of America.
