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.
Religious Emblems Award Recipients May 2020
We will be having a livestream Presentation Mass on Sunday, May 17, at 1 pm. Unfortunately, we were not able to do it from the Cathedral, so it will take place from St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Westlake Village. This Mass will be specifically for the Scouts, and our recipients of the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII emblems. Our celebrant will be Fr. Norm Supancheck, Region 11 Chaplain of the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (and an Eagle Scout himself), and Deacon Chris LaLiberté, chaplain, Catholic Committee on Scouting Archdiocese of Los Angeles, will be assisting him.
Please join us for this Mass at https://youtu.be/2RZz6QbVXzY on Sunday, May 17, at 1 p.m. During the Mass, your medals will be blessed and we will also be reading each recipient’s name.
