 Catholic Youth Religious Emblem Counselors Needed for AAD and Pope Pius XII Awards

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 to those willing to volunteer their talents in this important area of our Catholic Scouting Youth Ministry.  Training will be offered at our November 6, 7 & 8, 2015 Retreat at Alpine Scout Camp, Reeves Lodge Conference Center.
