 Annual Catholic Youth Religious Award Convocation

Sunday afternoon, May 5th, 2019

Mary’s Nativity Church

Flushing, Queens, New York, 11355



Catholic Scout Religious Emblems were presented at a Diocese of Brooklyn annual event called a Convocation. Each Scout who earned a Catholic Faith Religious Emblem was invited to the Convocation to be publically recognized for completing all the requirements for a given award.  Awards were presented before an audience of parents, family members, unit members and clergy and emblem counselors. The complete Convocation program is posted, see the link on the left column.  Thank you Shawnda Gerold for sharing your photos (posted below and in the gallery folder) of the 2019 Convocation.  


 Our sincere thanks to our 2019 Convocation host - Rev. Edward M. Kachurka,  Pastor,  Mary's Nativity/ Saint Ann Parish and Deacons James Noble and Vincent Lino, our Scouting Chaplains for being the lead celebrants at the Awards Ceremony.Retreat/DSC2252.jpgRetreat/DS1877.jpgRetreat/DSC1761.jpgRetreat/DSC1841.jpgRetreat/DSC1842.jpgRetreat/DSC2236.jpgRetreat/DSC1853.jpgRetreat/DSC208.jpgRetreat/DSC2272.jpegRetreat/DS2271.jpeg
