Ad Altare Dei Religious Emblem Offered This Summer
Seventeen boy scouts from all four Scripps Ranch troops will work together this summer to earn their Ad Altare Dei (AAD) religious emblem at our parish. Pursuing a religious emblem is an important part of a scout's "duty to God and country," one of the three promises of the Boy Scout oath. The AAD emblem is designed for 13- and 14-year-old boys and older of the Roman Catholic faith.
"Ad Altare Dei" or "to the altar of God" was founded to prepare altar servers but has evolved into a way to develop a fully Christian way of life through an exploration of the seven sacraments. The most important aspect is that the scout grows in his spiritual experience of his relationship to God and the church.
Highlights of this summer's AAD activities include a tour of John Paul the Great Catholic University, a campout retreat at Camp Balboa, a month-long service project to benefit the elderly and disabled in our community, a Q&A with our pastor about his vocation to the priesthood, and an interview on matrimony with the diocesan directors of the office of marriage and family life.
Traditionally held from October to May, this is a pilot, accelerated program at our parish for the summer. The bishop will award qualified Catholic boy scouts their religious emblems in a special ceremony in June 2013.
