A Scout is reverent. They are reverent toward God. They are faithful in their 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. Additional resources are available from Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y). 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. A class for the Catholic Ad Altare Dei (7th graders and older up to 18) and the Catholic Pope Pius XII for (9th graders and older up to 21) is currently being scheduled.
