Six members of Cub Scout Pack 182, sponsored by First Lutheran Church, received their Parvuli Dei Emblems over the weekend.

This is a Catholic award given to scouts to express their duty to God, family and friendship in community.

Despite the difficulties of the past year, each Webelos scout and their families focused and completed the requirements for this religious achievement. Father Stephen Norton, of St. Benedicts Parish, 2969 Otis Ave., blessed the medals and distributed them to the boys at the 9:30 a.m. mass on April 25.

As part of their requirements, the boys presented Fr. Norton with a banner, which displays the lessons they have learned.
Here the boys are pictured with their completed banner and the rest of Pack 182.
