Catholic Committee on Scouting will hold its 68th prayer service

The Catholic Committee on Scouting will hold its 68th annual Prayer Service and Emblem Presentation at 2 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Cathedral of the Assumption, 433 S. Fifth St.

Following a prayer service the committee will recognize Cub Scouts who earned their Light of Christ and Parvuli Dei emblems, and Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members who have earned the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII emblems.

Approximately 200 Scouts completed the requirements required to earn their emblems in 2012, according to a news release from the Scouting committee.

In addition to the Scouts, several adults will be recognized for outstanding contributions to Catholic Scouting and will be presented the St. George Award.

According to the news release, Scouting units are encouraged to bring their unit flags and American flags to the service for their annual blessing. At past prayer services and emblem presentations, the Cathedral has been packed with colorful flags and Scouting unit emblems, as well as the parents and families of the hundreds of young people involved in Catholic Scouting.

Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz and Father Jeffrey Shooner will preside at the service.
