The God and My Country book allows Catholic Explorers (ages 9-12) to learn more about the various saints representing the United States of America. Explorers enrich their faith by exploring Catholic elements that are most important to those saints, including the Eucharist, Corporal Works of Mercy, and missionary work. The program is thought-provoking, hands-on, and will foster a desire in Explorers to serve Jesus Christ through His Holy Church.
This book is divided into three Segments: one Segment for each year of the Level. AHG NCC developed the Catholic Faith Awards to be worked on each year.
Parents or Leaders should take the Catholic Faith Award Mentor Training prior to starting the book. Refer to the Faith Award Program Overview located in AHGresource for more details.
After the Explorer completes a Segment in the book, the Troop authorized purchaser can purchase the corresponding Segment patch. Once she completes Segments 1, 2, and 3, the God and My Country Medal can be ordered through your diocesan authorized purchaser. Please refer to the “Authorized Purchasers List for AHG Catholic Faith Awards” located in AHGresource.
