St. Meinrad Parish celebrated Scout Sunday on Feb. 3 by honoring Pack 102 at Mass.

The Cub Scout and Boy Scout Pack 102, based in the parish, is made up of 24 Cub Scouts and six Boy Scouts from the local area. The pack was awarded the Pope Paul VI National Quality Award. The award is granted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting based on the adult leadership training not only in Scouting lore, but also in Catholic Scout development and religious counseling.

Five individuals received the “Parvuli Dei” (“Children of God”) award. This emblem is awarded to young boys who participate in activities to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their families and parishes, and also to develop a good, positive self-image through the contributions they can make to the group or community. The five awarded this emblem were Luke Rahman, Gavin Daunhauer, Spencer Vaal, Gavine Lange and Cody Moffitt.

Scouts participated in the Eucharist by serving at Mass as servers, greeters, lectors, gift bearers, by carrying the flags during the procession and reading prayers of the faithful. A continental breakfast was served after the Mass. †
