Emblem Objectives

The purpose of the Parvuli Dei (Children of God) emblem is to help young boys explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their families and parishes, and also to develop a good, positive self-image through the contributions they can make to the group or community. The Parvuli Dei is designed for the Cub and his parent or guardian to work together. As the Cub completes each requirement he and his parents must sign off the activity in the workbook.
