The Peace Light of Bethlehem at St. John's
The Peace Light from Bethlehem arrived at St. John's on December 16, at 12:30 p.m.! We lit our lantern from the living flame of the Light from the Grotto of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Every year, Austrian Boy and Girl Scouts send representatives to Bethlehem to light six lanterns from the light that has burned at the site of the Nativity for over 1000 years. Three of these lighted lanterns are flown across the Atlantic Ocean to New York and volunteers "spread the light" across North America. We are blessed that the Peace Light has come directly to St. John's.
