Kirk Hernandez Jr. of Pack 619 (Den 5) earns the coveted Catholic Parvuli Dei medal and honor for Cub Scouts.

The purpose of the Parvuli Dei (Children of God) emblem is to help young boys explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their families and parishes, and also to develop a good, positive self-image through the contributions they can make to the group or community. Some examples of activities which Kirk participated include collecting food for the homeless, presenting colors for flag ceremonies, volunteering at Optimist Club events, assisting with various church activities, and providing Christmas carols to the elderly. As a Cub Scout and Catholic, Kirk has grown in his awareness of his responsibility to self, others and for God’s love in us.
