Peace Light of Bethlehem

On 7th December, a candle was lit in the Grotto of Christ’s Birth in the Church of the Nativity, in Bethlehem.  This flame was taken by Israeli and Palestinian Scouts to Tel Aviv Airport where it traveled to Vienna and after an International Service which will be held on 12th December, Scouts will help to  pass on the Peace Light throughout Europe and beyond.

Irish Scouts are collecting it in Hollyhead in Wales on Thursday 17th and after an Ecumenical Service in Fairview it is being passed to Scout Groups throughout the Country to bring to the local parishes.  Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry Scouts will be collecting it at a service in St. Paul’s, Dooradoyle and will be bringing it to the Scout Den where the Scouts will watch over it throughout the night and it will be brought by the Scouts to our 7.00 p.m. Mass on Saturday 19th December where we will light the Sanctuary Lamp which will flame throughout the coming year.

We invite people to  come with lamps, lanterns and candles to  share in the spreading of this  Peace Light.

We are very grateful  to our local Scout Group in leading us in this beautiful ceremony.
