Boy Scouts of America

AD ALTARE DEI Religious Emblem

A variety of religious emblems programs are used by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to encourage youth to learn about their faith and to recognize adults who provide significant service to youth in a religious environment. These religious programs are created, administered and awarded by the various religious groups, not the BSA, but each program must be recognized by the BSA. The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei (To the Altar of God) program is to help Boy Scouts of the Roman Catholic rite to develop fully a Christian way of life within their parishes. Mr. Danilich will offer an Ad Altare Dei program to any interested boys starting in the summer and into the Fall. Any interested boy should contact Mr. Danilich as soon as possible.
