About the Emblem
The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) program is to help Catholic Scouts of the Roman Rite
develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community. The program is organized in chapters based on the seven Sacraments. The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth.

Program Objectives
The most important aspect of the program is that the Scout grows in his/her spiritual experience of his/her
relationship to God and the church.

The Long Beach Area Council Catholic Committee on Scouting (LBACCCS) exists to provide resources and guidance to those youth and families looking to learn about their faith.

From Tiger Scouts to Venture Scouts and even adult Scouters, there are Catholic religious emblems programs which can be earned. For Catholic Scouts these awards provide a fantastic opportunity to learn about “duty to God” and to share with the local Scouting Catholic community.
