When & Where: Troop 514 adult Chaplain Mr. Ed Isakson and Mr. Steve Schelonka will facilitate the Pope Pius XII program, which will be held at the Isaksons’ home on Sunday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm starting on August 26th and concluding in December.

To register: Please e-mail Mr. Isakson at eisakson@comcast.net by August 20th to register for this program or to obtain more information about this medal or medals available for scouts of other faiths.

 

Also, please see the link below for a description of the Pope Pius XII medal from the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. It is a great opportunity for high school-age scouts to discuss how their faith affects the choices they make in life regarding careers, service, and state of life (marriage, single life, religious life, and priesthood).
