The Religious Emblems Programs are programs created by various religious groups for their children and youth. Boy Scouts of America recognizes these programs and allows the awards to be worn on the scout uniform, but all Religious Emblems Programs are created by the religious groups themselves. Once a scout earns a religious emblem for their faith, he can wear a blue and silver Religious Emblem Square Knot on their Scout shirt above the left pocket. These can be obtained at the Scout Shop with a certificate of completion awarded when the classes are finished. This is one of the 2 awards your son can earn as a Cub Scout and wear on his Scout uniform both as a Boy Scout and also as an adult leader later in life.
God and Country (Protestant)
Cub Scouts can earn the God and Me (grades 1-3) and God and Family (grades 4-5) emblems.
Catholic Religious Emblems
Cub Scouts can earn the Light of Christ (grades 1 -2) and the Parvuli Dei (grades 3-5). Catholic Religious Emblems programs are administered locally by the St. Paul and Minneapolis Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting (ACCS).
