The Old Roman
Catholic Patriarchate of St. Stephen provides the Imperial
Scout/Guide Award and the Imperial Distinguished Scout/Guide Award,
ecumenical Christian religious awards for both youth and adult
members of Scouting and Guiding programs around the globe that are
members of various "scouting" and similar youth programs

Seniors Scouts, Senior Guides, and Adult Leaders who are service-minded
above and beyond the call of duty and have a sincere interest in the
scholarly and active preservation of history. While our organization
is predominantly traditional Catholic, these awards are open to those
of all Christian faiths.
