Implementing the Rosary Series in Your Pack

Our pack is sponsored by St. Angela Catholic Church, so we encourage boys to earn their religious emblems and participate in the Rosary Series.  The series is a great way to introduce the rosary to young scouts.  There are 5 activities, and a beautiful 5″ patch can be awarded after each one (one for each set of mysteries, plus one that brings them all together).  We created the attached handouts that includes a summary sheet of the activity, and coloring pages.  We found that asking boys to color each mystery and to write a description of it really helps in making the rosary come alive. This activity is usually started at a den meeting.
