Boy Scouts at Catholic High School Receive Awards

Catholic High School students belonging to the Boy Scouts of Baton Rouge will receive a Religious Award from Bishop Robert W. Muench at the Catholic Committee on Scouting Ceremony in St. Gerard Majella Church on May 20, 2007. Those receiving awards are Peter Sicard of Troop 103, Ad Altare Dei Award; Ory Aguillard of Troop 136, Ad Altare Dei Award; Justin Huffty of Troop 7, Pope Pius XII Award; Matthew Mathurin of Troop 14, Pope Pius XII Award; Calvin Turk of Troop 14, Pope Pius XII Award; Frank Turk of Troop 14, Pope Pius XII Award; Michael Constant of Troop 229, Pope Pius XII Award; and Charles Garner of Troop 322, Pope Pius XII Award.

The Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) Religious Award is a Catholic Scouting program about the Seven Sacraments. Through this program, the Scouts deepen their understanding of the Rites of the Seven Sacraments and the importance as a primary means toward spiritual growth in our Catholic traditions.

The Pope Pius XII Religious Award is a Catholic Scouting program about church-related ministries and vocations. It includes youth led discussions on current issues facing the church and society. The Scouts become conscious of the importance of Scouting and the relationship to active ministry in the Catholic Christian faith community.
