The most reverend Bishop Arthur Serratelli presented religious medal awards to approximately 60 Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from troops in Northern New Jersey on Sunday, March 26, at St. Peter the Apostle Church in Parsippany.

Four boys from troop 159, Our Lady Queen of Peace Council in Hewitt, received awards. Each award involved months of work and group discussions including meetings on weekends.

Jacob L. and Nicholas S. earned their Pope Pius XII, Pillars of Faith Award and religious boy scout knots. The Pope Pius XII program deals with different life choices (single, married, religious, ordained), occupations and ministries. It includes youth-led discussions on current issues facing the church and society.

Timothy B. and David B. earned their Ad Altare Dei Award and religious boy scout knots. The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) program is to help Catholic Youth of the Roman Rite develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community.

Congratulations to all recipients of the awards, especially to the boys of Troop 159.
