This program is for Tiger or Wolf Cub Scouts (first and second grades) who are of the Catholic faith. The Light of Christ Activity Book #33074 is available from any local Boy Scout shop or order online at

The award package is ordered from the Catholic Committee on Scouting care of the Office for Youth and Young Adult Ministry and will be sent after certification by the parish.


Scouts who complete the Light of Christ are also entitled to wear the Religious Emblem Square Knot (silver knot on purple, item #5007) over the left pocket of the BSA uniform.


The Light of Christ emblem is typically presented at a parish Eucharistic Celebration and all award recipients are honored at an annual diocesan celebration in the spring.
