Pillars of Faith Recognition:
The purpose of the Pillars of Faith program is to provide a special recognition to those youth in Scouting who have earned all four of the Catholic Religious Emblems. Very few Scouts earn the Eagle Rank, and even fewer earn a Religious Emblem of their faith. Earning all four Religious Emblems is a monumental feat and demonstrates tremendous commitment to their Catholic Faith. The Pillars of Faith Program- Duty to God Pin recognizes these Scouts.
The name and design of the award represent the fact that the four Religious Emblems, one for each program are like pillars, supporting the Scouts’ development in and appreciation of their religious faith. The Religious Emblems are the pillars, not the roof, for none of us are ever done growing in our faith. The design also includes the Church, the Bible, the Cross, other essential elements in faith. The pin can be worn on the scout uniform or as a lapel pin on non-scouting attire.
