Catholic Youth Religious Emblems

We help promote the Religious Emblem
Programs for Cub, Boy and Girl Scouts:

How to Promote Catholic Youth Religious Emblems in your Unit ? 
  • Youth members obtain the specific booklet for their religion.  Check with the council store.
  • Each youth member will need his or her own booklet to document progress.
  • Some religions offer adult manuals for counselors and mentors.
  • Parents must review the program guidelines. 
  • Some programs require participants to be official "members" of the religious institution. 
  • Age/grade requirements vary from program to program. 
  • Each program sets its own guidelines as to who may serve as counselor.
  • Some programs require clergy  to serve as counselors;other programs allow parents or other family members to serve as counselors.
  • Families should talk to their religious leaders and show them the booklet before beginning any program.
  • Most programs require that they be completed under the auspices of that religious organization.
  • Many programs require the signature of the local religious leader. 
  • The youth member needs to complete the requirements, obtain the proper signatures, and follow the instructions to order the emblem. 
  • Some religious emblems require Scouts to complete a Diocesian Board of Review.
  • These emblems are not available for purchase from your local council store.
  • Completed Applications and $15. Fee for each youth Religious Award are mailed to the attention of the CCOSBQ Chairman.
  • Awards are presented by the Diocesan Committee on Scouting at the Annual Convocation.
