Pope Pius XII and Ad Altare Dei Religious Emblems

Posted on Sep 17 2015 - 11:18pm

To encourage youth 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. Classes are held on Sunday evenings at the St. Augustine’s parish center from October through February and are open to all Scouts from the Rockland district. Scouts who complete their religious emblem requirements will have their emblem presented to them at a special mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the spring.
