Ad Altare Dei Counselor Training will be held March 11 for Scouts

Ad Altare Dei Counselor Training

If you would like to help the Catholic scouts in your troop (or neighboring troops) this is the training for you. The AAD emblem is targeted for scouts who are 13-14 though older scouts can earn this as well. Females in Venturing are now also eligible to work on this emblem. The program is organized in chapters based on the seven Sacraments. The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth.
