Again this year we are offering an opportunity to attend a workshop for Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei. The workshop will be held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton parish on Sat., October 29, 2016. It will run from 8:30 a.m. and be done by noon. An adult partner must accompany all Scouts. All Scouts interested should register in advance on Eventbrite.
Each scout must also purchase a workbook at the scout shop on their own. Please plan on working on your books a little each night until completed. These cannot be done the night before the workshop.
The workshop is designed to complete a couple of the harder requirements as a group. Please plan to have the workbook complete when you arrive at the workshop with the exception of the requirements noted below, these will be covered at the workshop.
Light of Christ
This program is for Tiger and Wolf cubs. All requirements must be completed before third grade. Light of Christ Scouts will come at 8:30 with their completed books and we will provide the Church tour, a prayer service, and sign their books where possible. They will be done around 10:30 a.m.
This program is designed for Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Scouts (third through fifth grades). Parvuli Dei Scouts please have your book completed with the exception of Step 1-#2 Creation, Step 4-#2 make a gift and Step 5-#4 make a banner. We will end the day with a prayer service and signing of the books if possible. They will be done before noon.
Scouts who complete their books and attend this workshop will have completed the requirements for these Catholic religious awards.
Participants have the option of attending the Archbishops mass on Sunday January 29, 2017 at St Raphael’s Cathedral in Dubuque 2:00 PM. At this Mass the medals will be blessed and presented by Archbishop Jackels S.T.D.
