Scouts: Pius XII Religious Emblem Workshop
March 24 @ 6:00 pm
First New session for Scouts desiring to work on the Pius XII Religious Emblem.
The Pope Pius XII emblem is for Boy, Venture, and Varsity Scouts who are of High School age and who may have received the Ad Altare Dei Emblem, although it’s not required. Girls who are Venture Scouts may also earn this 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 normally included as part of a Pius XII retreat or Day of Recollection. The focus is on the vocations of Life as a Christian adult and is run by the participants.
PIUS XII has 11 meetings to cover the 7 chapters of the material covered to qualify for the award. Chapter 3 is covered over three meetings; Chapter 4 is covered over two meetings and Chapter 5 is covered over two meetings. The meetings are usually on Sunday’s and the first Chapter of Deanna’s course is at 6pm. The group may determine a different time.
