A Scout Is Reverent


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 Scouts to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America approves of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. 

If you are interested in earning a religious emblem, contact Troop 71's Religious Events Coordinator Susan Cannatella.

Upcoming Opportunities:
  • Ad Altare Dei: The Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) program aims to help Roman Catholic youth develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community. The program is organized in chapters based on the seven sacraments. The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth. The most important aspect of the program is that the Scout grows in his spiritual experience of his relationship to God and the church
