Duty to God

A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.

To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. Check the council service center or contact the religious organization directly to obtain the curriculum booklets.

For more information about the Religious Emblems Programs, contact Pam Kosnicki.

The BSA also has a resources page for the Religous Emblems Program.

The Western Massachusetts Council Catholic Committe on Scouting is hosting its Annual Religious Retreat September 22-24th, 2017.  More information and registration is available here.
