godandfamilyParvuliDeiYouth members must obtain the specific booklet for their religion. These booklets are due by October 1 this year in order to be awarded at the Mass in January next year. Please allow enough time to finish the books and schedule the required meeting with your priest or pastor.

Families should contact the Pack’s Religious Emblem Coordinator, Tait Skifstrom (562) 843-7300, to obtain the specific booklet for their religion or to ask questions.

Catholic and Protestant faith booklets are ready to distribute. Should you wish a booklet for another faith, notify Tait who will make sure that you get one. Please let him know as soon as possible so you may complete the award by October 1.

Once the Religious Emblem Booklets are completed, you will need to schedule an appointment with your priest or minister to get them signed. After that you can turn them in to Tait. All booklets will be returned to you.
