Cub Scout Religious Emblems
All Catholic Scouts have the opportunity to earn Religious Emblems to exhibit their spiritual growth within their age appropriate scouting program. The "Light of Christ" is a program developed by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS) for Tigers and Wolf Cub Scouts.  Parvuli Dei (Children of God) is a program designed for 8-10 year old Cub Scouts (Bears and Weeblos).   The workbooks are designed for the scout and parent to complete together, and no formal sessions are required.

Representatives from Pack 653 and Pack 207 have teamed up to assist scouting families in obtaining the workbooks, ordering religious emblems, setting aside time to work on the activities, and for presentation of awards at Mass.  The sessions will be held Saturday, Nov 5, Nov 12, Nov 19 from 4:00 – 5:30 PM.  After the final session on Saturday, November 19, participants and their families should plan to attend 5:30 PM Mass at the Basilica where scouts will be awarded their religious emblems.

If your scout has already completed the workbook for a Religious Emblem (last year or over the summer), but has not yet been awarded, they may participate in awards at Mass on November 19.   They will need to contact the facilitators to ensure religious emblems are ordered in time for the presentation.
