The annual Scouting Awards Mass, with Archbishop Joseph Naumann as our celebrant, Fr. Shawn Tunink concelebrating, will be held Sunday, April 18, at 2:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Peter, in Kansas City, Kansas.
Space may be limited and masks may be required due to Covid 19 response requirements. It has not been determined if a reception will follow immediately after Mass. We will naturally be following the Archdiocese's guidelines and will post updates as the date comes near. Please check back in early September for updates regarding Covid-19 social distancing and mask requirements.
The Cathedral is located at 409 N 15th St, Kansas City, KS 66102. Plan to arrive no later than 1:45 p.m., upon arrival check in with one of the volunteers present to help guide everyone on what to do. Everyone is expected to wear a full class A scout uniform.
Make sure you have paid all your class fees so instructors can order the needed awards. The deadline for submitting award applications and order forms is March 19. Visit the scouting awards page on our website for more information.
Awards That are typically handed out during this special celebratory Mass are: Ad Altare Dei, Pope Pius XII, Marian Medal, Bronze Pelican, St. George, St. Anne, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Pope Paul VI National Catholic Quality Unit Award, and American Heritage Girl religious awards for Pioneers and Patriots.
