Religious Emblems in our District

“A Scout is Reverent.” All Scouts show this by being faithful in their duty to God. Some go further and give special service. This can qualify them for a religious emblem. Such an emblem is not a Scouting award. It is conferred on a Scout by their religious leader. Each faith has its own requirements for earning its emblem. Listed below are the Pacifica District contacts for religious emblems as well as some valuable resources.
