The Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting recognized two Murphysboro Cub Scouts recently at the annual Scout Religious award Ceremony held at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Belleville.
Christopher Ahlfield received the Parvuli Dei medal, and Vincent Shields received the Light of Christ medal from the chaplain of the DCC, Rev. Eugene A. Kreher.
Both boys, from Pack 112, received their religious knot earlier at St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Murphysboro during the Scout Anniversary Mass.
Also recognized at the Scout Mass were: Holden Elardi-White (Pack 112), Ryan Michalesko (Troop 4), and Judy White (Assistant Scoutmaster Troop 4) for their religious accomplishments. Those three individuals received the International Catholic Scout Awareness Award.
