The Catholic Committee on Scouting serves young members of both the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts/USA. Our primary concern is the administration of the religious emblem programs for various age groups and providing for occasional retreats for Scouts. Cub Scout and Girl Scout awards are designed to be done with the Scout and her parent. Boy Scout awards are meant be done with a counselor. Catholic Religious Emblems will be presented to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts who have earned them during the past year. Awards to deserving adults will also be presented at the awards Mass. For inclusion in this year’s Honors Mass please ensure that all applications for youth and nomination forms for adult awards are received in the Youth Office at the Diocese of Birmingham by June 16th, 2014.
