Bronze Pelican

Bronze Pelican

The Diocese of Phoenix Catholic Committee on Scouting has authorized the Bronze Pelican Award. The pelican is an ancient Christian symbol which has several meanings. One aspect of the symbolism describes the relationship of Jesus Christ with His people by referring to how a mother pelican will give her life’s blood to her young to nurture and protect it. Also, the early Christian and Liturgical symbol of the pelican represents Christ. The significance of the Bronze Pelican Emblem is Christ-like devotion to youth, recognizing that adults in Scouting are called to nurture and raise our Scouts in Catholic ideals. The Bronze Pelican Award recognizes adults who have made contributions to the spiritual development of youth in Scouting, but the requirements are somewhat less rigorous than for the St. George Award.

Current to 2019. No awards in 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic.
