Thanks to Deacon Philip
J. Siani for your notification to the CCOS that you have commenced a weekly Ad Altare Dei Award program at Our Lady of Grace
Church in Brooklyn for nine Scouts. This is the largest number of Boy Scouts in the Diocese to be working on the Ad
Altare Dei Award in a number of years. We are confident that with Patricia Marotta, and your experiences in Religious
Education and as a Diocese of Brooklyn AAD Counselor, that we will be proudly be presenting these Scouts with their Religious
Emblem Awards at our April 25th, 2015 Convocation. We value the support for Scouting received from Fr. John Tino, Pastor
of Our Lady of Grace Church.
To make Youth religious emblems available to many more
Catholic Scouts in the Diocese we seek to enlist, train and qualify more Adult Counselors in 2015.
Send the names of Unit Leaders, Deacons, Youth Ministers, Religious Teachers, and Clergy who are willing to Counsel
Awards for a Specific Unit, Group of Parishes, Borough, or the Diocese to the CCOSBQ Committee Awards Chairman for immediate
follow-up. The Committee will provide Emblem Counselor Books, Training and Mentoring
