Patrick Mullen of Cub Scout Pack 663 was honored recently during a liturgy at St. Bernadette Church in Severn.
The 8-year-old son of Patrick and Regina Mullen earned the Parvuli Dei Award, a religious emblem of the Catholic faith earned by Cub Scouts. For three months, Patrick performed community service, studied with his parish priest, the Rev. Domenic Cieri, and conducted prayer services at home.
Among those celebrating Patrick's achievement were his parents, his sister, Kelly, his grandparents Tom and Jeanne Matthews, Betty Mullen, Bear Den Leader George Yeager and Cub Scout Pack 663 Cubmaster Linda Fonteneau.
