The Matinecock District scouts from Huntington’s Cub Scout Pack 181 and Pack 178 and Boy Scout Troop 78 and their volunteer scouting leaders participated in the annual “A Scout is Reverent Week”, in recognition of the anniversary of Boy Scouts of America and the 12th point of the Scout Law, during a Mass at St. Patrick’s R.C. Church in Huntington on Sunday, March 2nd. The altar servers at the Mass were Scouts from Troop 78.
Cub Scouts from Pack 178, with the assistance of their parents, leaders and Chaplain recently completed the Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei Catholic Scout Religious Emblems programs. These courses consist of activities and Bible studies designed to help the Scout become more aware of God’s presence in his daily life, especially within the home and community. By completing the requirements, the Scout has strengthened their spiritual growth and religious knowledge. Presentations of the Catholic Cub Scout Religious Emblems were made during the Celebration of the Mass at St. Patrick’s R.C. Church at Scout Sunday services. Edie Pulizzotto, Cubmaster of Pack 181 said of the Mass, “It a great day for our Scouts to get together and celebrate their faith and all the great things Scouting does for our boys and their families.”
