The Light  Is Life is a program developed for Scouts of the Eastern Rite Catholic Churches. Light  Is Life respects  the cultural and ritual differences among the various Eastern Catholic Churches.

Then going forth,he will witness this  life through maturity in communal worship and in Christian formation of his world. This program is to be used by the Eastern Catholic Scouts rather  than the Ad Altare Dei program.It is not appropriate to work on both programs. 
 Program objectives The most  important aspect of the program is that the Scout grows in his spiritual experience of his relationship to God and the Church. Eligibility Registered Boy Scout of one of the Eastern Rite Catholic Churches. Designed for 12- to 13-year-old Scouts, but older  or younger Scouts may use this  program. Mustbe completed by the youth's 18th birthday.

The use of a Catholic Bible is required for this program. Diocesan and BSA Youth Protection policies must  be followed. A trained religious emblems coordinator/counselor is required to work on this religious emblem. Contact your Eparchial Catholic  Committee.
 
 Pope Pius XII 
 About the emblem  Pope Pius XII is Catholic Scouting's church-related ministries and vocation program. The program deals with different life choices (single,married,religious,ordained), occupations,and ministries in the church as calls from  God. It includes youth-led discussions on current issues facing the church and society,which are normallyincluded as part of a Pius XII retreat  or day of recollection. 
Eligibility Registered Venture Crew Member or Boy Scout of Catholic faith. Designed for age 15- to 16-year-olds, but all registered Venturers (male  or female before  their  21st birthday) and all registered Boy Scouts (in high  school,before their  18th birthday) are eligible.
 Requirements Each Venture Crew Member and Scout must  have their  own  activity book.The program should be run by the candidates themselves; the adult  serves as a moderator. Ideal group size is four to 12 youth, but the course  may be run with smaller groups. A number of interviews and an investigation of a controversial issue facing the church or society  are integral to the program. A retreat experience, ideally centered on the Pius XII program itself  and a ministries service  project are required. The program is designed to be completed in nine to 12 sessions. As the youth are older,two-hour sessions seem to work well,and flexibility is often  required in scheduling sessions  and interview feedback. Successfully complete a Pope Pius XII Board of Review. Diocesan  and BSA Youth Protection policies must  be followed. A trained religious emblems coordinator/counselor/moderator is required to work on this religious emblem.
