Bishop celebrates Mass with Boy Scouts

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades celebrated Mass for members of the Boy Scouts throughout the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend at Moreau Seminary on Sept. 20. Ad Altare Dei Medals (meaning “to the altar of God”) were awarded to Scouts who have demonstrated knowledge and participation in the sacramental life of the Church. Scouts and adult leaders also received International Catholic Awareness Emblems, testifying to their focus and commitment to the development of the global Catholic community.

Bishop Dwenger High School students Thomas Roesler and Nick Thelen, shown here with Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, were presented with Pope Pius XII awards for their participation in the Church and coordination of an entire day of Eucharistic Adoration during this year’s Divine Mercy Sunday. The two upperclassmen ensured that there were Boy Scouts present in front of the Blessed Sacrament for the entire 24-hour celebration held at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Fort Wayne.
