Ad Altare Dei Emblem Retreat

Posted on Nov 22 2015 - 11:26pm

As the Scout Oath starts out "On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country...;" and we all know the twelfth Scout Law is that a Scout is Reverent. How do we show Duty to God and show "reverence?" One of the ways Scouting can help in this area is by providing opportunities to earn a Religious Emblem. Each religion has their own versions of these emblems and as we are chartered by St. Ambrose, we offer the Roman Catholic Religious Emblems programs.  Cub Scouts start out with Light of Christ (usually as a Wolf scout) and then Parvuli Dei (usually earned by either Bear of 1st year Webelos). Boy Scouts graduate to Ad Altare Dei and for those that want to continue in this endeavor there is the Pope Pius XII. For now, we are starting a group to pursue the Ad Altare Dei religious emblem. This program focuses on the 7 sacraments of the Catholic Church. Any boy who has finished 6th grade, is a practicing Roman Catholic, and an active member of a BSA Troop is eligible. The program will consist of 2 retreats, as well as a couple additional sessions, and a service project (TBD) that supports St. Ambrose in some way. Please review the attached flyer, and if the Scout is interested please send an email to Pat Reardon (patjreardon@gmail.com) as well as register at the web site shown on the flyer. The retreats are put on by the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting, and so these are Council-wide retreats. There is a $90 fee per Scout which covers both retreats as well as the emblem. The emblem itself (a medal) will be presented at St. Mary's Basilica by the Bishop on May 7 of 2016. Any questions please contact Pat Reardon, Troop 5's Religious Emblems Coordinator.
