I loved this challenge. Cardinal Sean O'Malley gave Sean his Ad Altare Dei Scout Catholic Medal on a beautiful Sunday in May.
Ad Altare Dei Medal Ceremony
Sean worked for months every Friday night for two hours on completing the requirements for the Ad Altare Dei Catholic Medal. It is difficult for a 14 year old boy to give up his Friday nights for months, but Sean stuck with it. We were so proud of him when he was presented with his medal and his grandparents enjoyed the event also. He is growing up so fast and the moments where he makes us proud far outweigh the moments when he is a normal teen.
