Congratulations Scouts

On Saturday, Webelo and Boy Scouts gathered at St. John's Cathedral to celebrate mass with Bishop Steinbock and receive awards for recent achievements. Marcus Flores and Lauro Platas received the Parvuli Dei Award. This is a Christian family emblem awarded for studying and advancing in both religious knowledge and spiritual formation. With the help of parents and scout leaders, the boys became more aware of God's presence in their daily lives and completed the Parvuli Dei booklet assigned. Dominic Roberts and William Schultz received the Ad Altare Dei Award, a beautiful medal and blessings from the Bishop. The purpose of earning the award is to equip the scout to take his place in the world as a maturing Catholic and a maturing American. During the process of completing the work towards earning the medal, Dominic and William studied the seven sacraments in depth. Congratulations boys, we are proud of your accomplishments and proud to have the opportunity to attend such a special occasion with you!
