Duty to God

All Catholic Scouts whether they are Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Scouts or Venturers have the opportunity to earn Religious Emblems to exhibit their spiritual growth within their age-appropriate scouting programs.


Light of Christ

Designed for 6-7 years old Cub Scouts.


Parvuli Dei

Designed for 8-10 years old Cub Scouts.


Ad Altare Dei

Designed for any youth of the Roman Catholic Faith who is registered in a BSA Troop or Crew.


Pope Pius XII

Designed for Venturing Crew Members and Boy Scouts 15 years old and older.


Light is Life

Designed for Boy Scouts, 12 -13 years old of the Eastern-rite Catholic Churches. Scouts in the Eastern Catholic Churches work on Light is Life rather than the Ad Altare Dei emblem.

Tell us what you think

We invite parents and emblem coordinators to take the Cub Scout emblem survey. We invite Scouts and counselors to complete an Ad Altare Dei survey. We invite Scouts and moderators to take the Pope Pius XII survey. Surveys are the same as those found in the back of each emblem book.

We value your opinion on our programs and thank you for taking your time to complete a short survey.
