Religious Emblems Counselor Training

August 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Are you interested in becoming a Counselor or Facilitator for Catholic Religious Emblems? If so, please plan to attend the upcoming mandatory training session on August 12, 2018, from 2:00-5:00 pm at the Scout Achievement Center, 10078 Reading Rd, Cincinnati 45241. Please RSVP to Tom Wiles, chair@archcincyccos.org, by August 6 if you plan to attend.

All adults intending to lead a Boy Scout Emblems program (Ad Altare Dei or Pope Pius XII) must meet the Archdiocese and BSA youth protection requirements prior to beginning a Religious Emblems program. The details of these youth protection requirements will be discussed at the training. These requirements are also highly recommended for Cub Scout Emblems Coordinators.

New Counselors and Facilitators for the Boy Scout Religious Emblems must complete the following before attending this training:

  1. Purchase the Ad Altare Dei Counselor’s Guide and Youth Manual or the Pope Pius XII Facilitator Manual and Participant Manual from the Scout Shop or ScoutStuff.org, and bring the book with you to the training.
  2. Obtain permission from your Parish Priest to lead a Religious Emblems Program by completing the Intent to Begin form in the front of the Counselor’s Guide or Facilitator Manual, and bring a copy of this completed form to the training.
  3. Complete Virtus and BSA Youth Protection (online training), or have these requirements scheduled and completed before beginning the program.

For those of you that are already Counselors or Facilitators and would be interested in sharing your experience or expertise with these programs, your attendance at this training would be greatly appreciated.

Please Note: This training is open to all adults in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati; however, for adults in the northern portions of the Archdiocese, additional training options are available in the Dayton area on an as-needed basis. Please contact Harry Heaton, harryheaton@me.com, for more information.

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Wiles, Chairman of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Committee on Scouting, at chair@archcincyccos.org or (513) 518-5679.
