This virtual training program is designed for those who desire to serve as a counselor or facilitator for Catholic Religious Emblems in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
Religious Emblem Programs in Scouting can have a significant, positive influence in developing spirituality, citizenship, and character. The most important ingredient in Catholic Scouting is the interaction that youth have with their adult leaders and with priests, deacons, and religious emblems counselors. Volunteers in Scouting are role models and mentors, and have a lasting impact on the lives of the youth they serve.
The training will be online, beginning at 9 a.m. and conclude by noon if not sooner.
Attendees should have the Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei activity books for Cub Scouts or the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII participant and counselor/facilitator books for Scouts BSA and Venturers. All are available at the Scout Shop except Pope Pius XII, which is downloadable online. Here are the links for the downloads – https://www.nccs-bsa.org/store/product-category/workbooks/
Registration will close on September 5th. Registrants will receive the ZOOM link via email.
