Eleven Boy Scouts earn religious award

Eleven local Boy Scouts recently received the Parvuli Dei Religious Emblem during a June 10 ceremony at St. Patrick Church in Macedon.

Parvuli Dei means children of God, and the purpose of the emblem is to help young boys explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their everyday lives, according to the Web site of the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. It also is intended to help them develop a positive self-image through the contributions they make to their communities.

The Boy Scouts receiving the award were Andrew York, Nicholas Thomas, Nicholas Skrotzki, Colin Nims, Mitchell Miller, Andrew Merwin, Holden Maiorana, Colin Hayes, Eddie Durkin, Todd Brockhuizen and Nathaniel Bogel.
