Sign up for Religious Emblem Classes

Posted on Oct 3 2014 - 9:23am

A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs and we are fortunate that two of these programs for Roman Catholic Scouts are offered right here at St. Augustine’s – The Ad Altare Dei and the Pope Pius the XII emblems. The classes are taught on Sunday evenings at the parish center and are open to Scouts from the Rockland district. Two signups are now available on the Troop 79 Web site.  Please go to the signup sheets to see a description of the program as well as age requirements. Please sign up now and take advantage of this awesome opportunity to grow stronger in your faith.
