The Marian patch is the companion to the Marian medal. Young people earn this patch by completing the Mary, the First Disciple Catholic religious program.
By purchasing this item, you affirm that you completed the application at the back of the program book and submitted it to your local diocese.
Note that some dioceses have additional requirements to complete in order to receive the medal or patch, beyond what is stated in the booklet. Please reach out to your local diocese to let them know you are completing the program and ask about any additional requirement or award ceremonies they will be holding.
