Helpful Files for Advisors 


There are many various required activities and events that must be completed for the religious recognitions. Sometimes it is hard as an Adviser to know where to find information about where to find these activities and events. Below are some that we know are planned and that can assist your efforts in completing the various religious recognitions. See the links specific to each religious recognition for more specific information. 

If you are aware of events at your parish or in your area that would help fulfill a requirement for a religious recognition, send the information to and we will post it so others will know about it too!

Attending an ordination ceremony can fulfill the requirements for AAD Chapter 7. The Annual Ordination Ceremony for the Diocese of Joliet is typically held in May. See the Diocese of Joliet website for upcoming dates. 


Ideally, religious awards should be presented three times: on the troop level at a meeting or Court of Honor; ion the parish level n the church during an appropriate mass; and on the diocesan level at the JDCCS Annual Mass & Religious Recognition Ceremony.  We have a file of presentation scripts that you can use and amend to create a proper presentation at your troop and/or church.  Access it here.
