The following outline summaries of requirements are just that -- outline summaries and not full requirements.  These outlines are intended only to give the reader a snapshot of some of the areas covered in each religious emblem program.  All related instructions, some requirements and most details are omitted.  Please purchase or order the appropriate program material to participate in this program. 


Light of Christ: The Light of Christ Program seeks to help Tiger and Cub Scouts develop a personal relationship with Jesus by learning about:


1.   Family:  The Scout learns about his family and its similarity to Jesus' family, his own baptism, and Jesus’ baptism.  The Scout also attends a baptism and learns the "Sign of the Cross" and the "Glory be to the Father".


2.   God's Call:  The Scout learns about his parents feelings about parenting, jobs Jesus had when He was their age, jobs they can do, and  jobs their parents have.  Scouts are asked to "Remember to tell Jesus 'Good Morning' and 'Good Night' every day" and to ask Jesus for help in doing their best in carrying out their jobs."


3.   Eucharist:  Scouts learn about the importance of food in daily life, special meals, prayer, the importance Jesus placed on feeding the multitudes, and the Eucharistic celebration.  Each Scout is asked to attend Mass and to make up a prayer to tell Jesus how they feel about him.


4.   Forgiveness:  Scouts study the bible, learn about obedience, discuss sin, learn about the Sacrament of Reconciliation, explore the concept of forgiveness, and learn to seek forgiveness.


5.   Family of God:  Scouts learn about their church, things in their church, and items used in the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Reconciliation.  Scouts are also asked to learn the "Our Father".


Parvuli Dei:  The Parvuli Dei religious emblem program is for Cub Scouts between the ages of eight and ten and seeks to help these Scouts learn about:


1.   God and His Creation:  This part of the program focuses on the creation story, learning about gifts from God, giving prayerful thanks for these gifts, and learning about the special gifts and abilities that God has given each person.


2.   God Our Father, His Son Jesus Christ and I:  In this part of the program, the Scout considers the gifts he could have given Jesus, if he had been a shepherd boy; discusses things he can do for Jesus today, discusses what the Scout's parents learned about Jesus when they were his age, participates in a family devotion, and discusses how God has shown his love to us and how the Scout can show his love to family members.


3.   Jesus, Our Church and I:  The focus of this part of the program is learning about the relationships of the clergy and the people in his parish, parish activities, the special celebrations of the Church, and things he can do for his family and parish.


4.   Jesus, His People and I:  Love and kindness to others is the focus of this part of the program.  Here the Scout learns about helping others, praying for others, doing good deeds, and apologizing when he has made someone in his family angry.


5.   Children of God, Other Cubs and I:  This part of the program focuses on how to serve Jesus, teaching skills, and showing love.  There is also a final project to celebrate the completion of the Scout's study for this program.

Pope Pius XII:  The Pope Pius XII religious emblem program is for Scouts who are 14 years of age or older.  Scouts participating in this study of the Pope Pius XII Religious Emblem Program will explore five aspects of their own spiritual growth.  Each area of exploration requires the Scout to read Scriptural passages and other material, to engage in a dialogue, to make present commitments and plan for future involvement.  Areas of exploration include:


1.  Being Christian:  Including learning how to build on the Scout's understanding of how a Christian imitates Christ in real life with total commitment and how he has learned important lessons from life in what are called "God-moments" or "faith experiences".


2.   Church Related Ministries and Vocations Today:  The Scout is asked to examine how God calls people to a vocation, what vocation (sacramentally married life, religiously professed life, or ordained life) means to him, and how he is and will his vocation.  He also will explore how being a believer affects his life, how God, church, religion and faith fit into his life, making a spiritual commitment to prayer, how he can minister to others and how his efforts are accomplishing what God wants him to do with his life. 


3.   Awareness of Responsibility to Self and Society:   The theme of this unit is social awareness with a focus on love of God and love of neighbor;  living by a code of right conduct; acting responsibly; and setting a good example.  Scouts explore learning from mistakes, define their own moral code of conduct, develop a "bottom line" or personal motto, learning to be a part of the Church, developing an understanding of how to act responsibly and respectfully in a relationship, learning about how being Catholic will influence his behavior in life, and learning about the challenges and struggles people face in life.  The Scout is also asked to help another Scout achieve a religious emblem, understand the social, spiritual, moral, economic and educational challenges he will face; and predict challenges to be faced by the next generation(s).


4.   Citizenship: Home and Country:  Here the Scout will complete readings, research and discussions on the place of law in human life, the challenge to seek the common good, the need to protect all the human family, and preserve our natural environment.  It also touches on the role of government in helping achieve these goals.  The Scout will also explore the relationship between love, acceptance, racial harmony, needing each other, law, attitudes, creeds, commandments.  As part of the learning process, Scouts participate in projects to learn about commitment including service through charitable projects and programs.


5.   Being A Catholic Adult:  The dialogue in this section focuses on doubts, faith, the Creed, the effect of  someone else's life as an example, the Sacrament of Confirmation and respect for life. Scouts are given the opportunity to learn more about their present and future commitments through participation and readings, including exploring living in witness to faith, making lifelong commitments, and making commitments to help with future Pope Pius XII programs.
