LIMA — Area Boy Scouts were honored recently during the St. Charles Scout Sunday Mass.
Shawnee Middle School eighth grader Ethan Delgado and Lima Central Catholic sophomores and Eagle scouts Quentin Potempa, Brandon Goldsbery and John Sreenan were awarded the Ad Altare Dei religious medal. The award symbolizes a scout’s Christian awareness.
Ad Altare Dei is Latin for “to the altar of God.” As part of their religious instruction, these Boy Scouts performed community service and traveled to the Our Lady of Consolation Basilica and National Shrine in Carey, for a retreat. Their religious emblems counselor was St. Charles parishioner and volunteer Jose’ Delgado.
