Last night Zach and three other Catholic scouts from his patrol started the Ad Altare Dei religious emblem program. We will be meeting weekly to learn about the sacraments and how they apply to our lives. Very few scouts earn their religious emblems as the classes are a lot of work. After working on getting approved for almost 2 years I finally got the go ahead about 2 weeks ago.
We met at Mark’s house to start the program. Last night we went over the general information on Sacraments. Next week we start with the Sacrament of Baptism. I was very proud of the boys for taking this seriously and being open to sharing their faith which is not always easy for teenage boys to do.
