Eucharistic Revival Activity Program for Scouts
In conjunction with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, Troop 719 is participating in the Eucharistic Revival Activity Program. By offering this program, Troop 719 is lending support to the National Eucharistic Revival.
These activities are designed to encourage Scouts to learn more about the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Scouts are required to complete the main central patch requirement (pictured at right) first before the auxiliary activity patches (pictured below) may be displayed.
As Scouts complete each requirement, please contact the Troop 719 Scoutmaster.
Also, if parents or scouts have questions about this program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make it easier to keep track of each activity Scouts are doing, feel free to use the below worksheet. This is not required and not an official part of the program, but a Troop 719 creation to help Scouts track progress.
All Scouts participating in this program need to get the main central patch (pictured below) first before getting any auxiliary patches. To get this patch, Scouts need to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist (if made First Communion and have no moral impediment) for 12 weeks, preferably consecutively.
Auxiliary Activity Patches
Participants are required to complete the main central patch requirement first before any auxiliary activity patches may be displayed. All 8 auxiliary activity patches may be earned and any 5 may be placed around the central patch. Scouts can use 5 patches around the central patch. These can be displayed on the Scout uniform on the front above the left pocket.
