On Sunday, Jan. 27, Archbishop John G. Vlazny and the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting will present Catholic scouting emblems to 109 young men and women from 28 parishes and missions across Western Oregon and Clark County, Wash, at a 2 p.m. Mass at St. Mary Cathedral in Northwest Portland.

Recipients include 38 people receiving the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII religious emblems. One adult will be recognized and three unit awards will also be presented.

Scouting is part of the Catholic Church's youth ministry plan. Catholic scouts have participated in the religious emblem program for more than 85 years. Young men and women and their scout units are sponsored by parishes, Catholic schools and several Knights of Columbus Councils.

"The Catholic Scouting religious emblem program focuses on the whole person to integrate family, faith and community with study, skills and fun," said Deacon Thomas Gornick, Archdiocesan Scout Chaplain. "Scout volunteers, working with families in our parishes, develop in our youth a fuller understanding of their role in their church and community. The religious emblem program is designed to deepen the faith experience of each scout and their family."

Each scout, over the past year, has worked to complete requirements that include faith enrichment, study and service to their parish, scout unit and community. The archbishop and the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting will present the following emblems to their scouts: Tiger Cubs and Wolf Cubs up through the second grade will be presented the Light of Christ award; Cub Scouts who have completed the second grade receive the Parvuli Dei; Boy Scouts receive the Ad Altare Dei and high school Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts receive the Pius XII. The Class of 2013 has a significant number of older youth receiving the Boy Scout Emblems.

The National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry offers Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls and Camp Fire Scouts the following awards: The "I Live My Faith," award is earned by youth between ages 9-11, or between the fourth and sixth grade; the "Family of God" Medal is awarded to youth between the ages of 6 and 9; the "Spirit Alive" is awarded to Catholic youth in high school; and the "Marian," award is given to Catholic youth who have already received the "Spirit Alive" award.

The Mass will also recognize the 78 scouts and adult leaders of Scout Troop 50 from Stayton chartered by the Knights of Columbus, Troop 136 and Pack 136, both chartered by Valley Catholic Elementary School in Beaverton, with the Pope Paul VI National Catholic Quality Unit Award.

The Pope Paul VI National Catholic Quality Unit Award is given to a Scout Unit chartered by a Catholic parish, Catholic school or the Knights of Columbus. To qualify for the unit award, all registered adults have participated in scout training, the unit conducted a service project for its church, parish or diocesan community or chartered organization within the past 12 months, and the unit participates in a religious activity in the parish and diocese. These units' most significant achievement was that 25 percent of youth members have or are actively working on a Catholic Scout religious emblem.

Two scouts will be presented with the Frank Parater Award. The award is named for Servant of God, seminarian, student and scout Frank Parater (1897-1920). Parater, born and raised in Richmond, Va., was a North American College seminarian, student and Eagle Scout who died Feb. 7, 1920 of rheumatic fever.

The Diocese of Richmond initiated his cause for sainthood, because of his outstanding witness of faith and service to the youth in his community.

The award recognizes those scouts who have earned all four Boy Scout religious emblems (Light of Christ, Parvuli Dei, Ad Altare Dei and Pius XII), and Girl Scouts or Campfire Girls who earn all four of National Federation for Youth Ministry Emblems (Family of God, I Live My Faith, The Marian Medal and the Spirit Alive award). Those earning the Frank Parater Award are Taylor Sutton of Tigard and John Campanella of Oregon City.

The Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting announced that Archbishop Vlazny will honor Paula Foster with the Bronze Pelican during the Scout Recognition Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral. Ms. Foster, an adult scout leader at St. Matthew Parish in Hillsboro, will be recognized for her service to Catholic youth as a leader in the scout program and the Archdiocese Catholic Committee on Scouting.

The Bronze Pelican is awarded by the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting to those outstanding adults who work in the Scouting Program under Catholic auspices, serve Catholics in Scout Units not partnered by the Church, and to those who have made a significant contribution to scouting in the field of Catholic relationships. The pelican is an ancient symbol of the Church, a bird that is known for its willingness to sacrifice self for the good of their offspring.

A reception will follow the Mass.
