How to Find a Catholic Religious Emblems Counselor 

Locate a Religious Emblems Counselor

Catholic religious emblems programs for older youth (Mary, The First Disciple, Spirit Alive, Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII) require that a trained Religious Emblems Counselor lead the group sessions. See the "About Us" link on the left Navigation pane to locate a parish/area representative to help you locate a counselor or click here.

      • Scouting units in Douglas and Elbert Counties may contact directly our Northern Diocesan Representative. See the "About Us" tab above for phone number and email address.

Youth working on the Marian Medal, Spirit Alive, Ad Altare Dei, or Pope Pius XII awards are required to attend a retreat sponsored by the Catholic Committee on Scouting. Religious counselors are required for work on any of these four awards, and must be registered with the Catholic Committee prior to authorization of any work on these awards.
