All youth and adults—Scouts or non-Scouts, Catholic or non-Catholic, male or female—are welcome to participate in the Religious Activity Programs promoted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. These activities include the Rosary Series, the Footsteps of American Saints, the International Catholic Awareness Award, and the Good Turn Project. The activities may be used by families, schools, or any Girl Scout, Boy Scout, Cub Scout, American Heritage Girl, Campfire or Venturer.
Activity RequirementsThe youth and adults must perform the requirements for their grade level to complete this activity.
Completion of the ActivityAfter completing the requirements, a parent or scout leader will complete the Patch Order Form (Online PDF) and mail it along with the applicable fee to the NCCS. The answers to the questions do not need to be forwarded when ordering the patch.
Presentation of the PatchPatches are to be presented to those who earned them and can be presented in a formal Awards Mass, Scout meeting, by family members, etc. The key is to make the presentation special, so the youth understand why they have earned this patch. Also, the patch should be presented in a timely manner so the youth is recognized shortly after completing the activity.
