Patron Saint Badges requirements: Patron Saint Badge Reqirements
These patches are designed for youth ages 5 to 15 who are participants in Behold Christ Catholic Clubs, i.e., Little Flowers Girls’ Clubs, Blue Knights Boys’ Club, Little Women Hospitality Clubs and Our Lady’s Honor Guard. Although each of these clubs have their own specific award system in place, these badges are designed to widen the experience of the participants within a Catholic context. So, if one is working on pets, the patron saint associated with learning how to care for pets is St. Francis of Assisi. In this way, the youth learn to see the world around them in a Catholic context. This Catholic context is so very important to help us integrate our Catholic faith with every aspect of our lives. In this secular world, we tend to compartmentalize our daily lives into specific areas: work, play, prayer, etc. A Catholic world view means that each area of life is seen through a Catholic lens. God and faith are present everywhere. Sometimes, we just don’t see it or realize it. The goal of these badges is to help youth practice seeing the world through Catholic eyes.
