For the last 92 years the Los Angeles Catholic Committee on Scouting has presented the Catholic Religious Emblems to boy scouts who have earned either the Ad Altare Dei (7-8th grade) and the Pope Pius XII (9-12th grade). This year the presentation and Mass was held on May 27 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angeles.
Boy Scouts earn these distinctions through their local parishes by delving more deeply into their faith during group discussion and through service. In addition, a special recognition, the Chi Rho Award, is given to those scouts who have earned all four of the Catholic Religious Emblems over their scouting careers. St. Francis recognizes and celebrates all of our current and incoming students who earned emblems and awards at this year’s ceremony.
