This virtual training program is designed for those who wish to serve as a counselor or facilitator for religious emblems in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
Religious Emblems 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 Emblems books for either Cub Scouts (Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei activity books) or Scouts BSA and Venturers (Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII participant and counselor books). 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 April 21. Registrants will receive the ZOOM link.
