The 48th Annual Diocesan Scout Recognition Mass was held Sunday, February 17. A number of young men from St. Stephen earned their religious emblems. Please view our pictures of these accomplished young men (see photo gallery on left).

The Light of Christ  is a National Award for Tiger and Wolf Scouts that encourages scouts to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. With parents’ active assistance and participation in this program, it is hoped that the Cub will come to see Jesus as a real person and his friend. Receiving the Light of Christ from St. Stephen is Gregory “Bryce” Doyle.

Parvuli Dei (Children of God) is a national award for Bear through Webelos Scouts. The purpose of the Parvuli Dei emblem is to help young boys explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their families and parishes, and also to develop a good, positive self-image through the contributions they can make to the group or community. Receiving the Parvuli Dei emblem from St. Stephen are Nicholas DiTroia, Gregory Bryce Doyle, Dean Herberger, and Jonathan McClain.

The Ad Altare Dei emblem is for Boy Scouts. The purpose of Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) is to help Catholic Boy Scouts to develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community based on the seven Sacraments.  Receiving the Ad Altare Dei emblem from St. Stephen are Sean Masterson, Davin Barlow, Isaac Barlow, Gavin Doyle, Ethan Fidhel and Samuel Herzberg. 

Both Pack 610 and Troop 610 received the National Catholic Quality Unit Award--Pope Paul VI at the Gold Level.

Congratulations to these young men for earning their religious emblems.

Beginning with first grade Tiger cubs through fifth grade Webelos, Cub Scouts learn new skills while having fun.  The emphasis is on duty to God, others, and self.

Troup 610 is an excellent opportunity for boys aged 11-18 to enjoy oudoor activities while learning leadership and developing physically, mentally, and morally.
