Ad Altare Dei - Fall 2018

Troop 98 has been given an opportunity for Scouts to earn the Ad Altare Dei award. This is the first of two available religious awards for boys of the Roman Catholic faith. The next one is called Pope Pius XII (your Scoutmaster earned both of these as a boy).

Scouts who complete this award get an AAD medal and get to wear the purple knot on their uniform (shown on the right). This is the only knot that a Scout may wear.

This is a lengthy commitment. Make sure you're prepared to go to all the sessions.

  • Sunday evenings from 6:30PM to 8PM
  • At Saint Agnes RC Church, 445 North Main Street in Sellersville (you'll have to get your own rides, but if enough Scouts go then carpooling is possible)
