*The Peace Light, symbolic of the Light of Christ especially evident at Christmas, promotes peace, harmony, and unity among allpeople of the world – every race, ethnicity, and creed. For several decades, the Scouts and others around the world have actively promoted global peace and harmony through sharing the Peace Light. The Peace Light from Bethlehem campaign was originally organized in 1986 in Austria. Since 1986, and especially after the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe in 1989, there has been a growing cooperation between Scouts in many countries allowing the light to travel throughout 30 European nations.
For more than 1,000 years, oil lamps have continuously burned at the grotto at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Each year, a child from Austria travels as a pilgrim to obtain the flame. During the Third Week of Advent, a Service of Dedication is held in Vienna, Austria to share the Light with Scouting delegations from across Europe. Scouts return to their own countries and with a message of peace, share the Light with churches, hospitals, retirement homes, and places of public, cultural and political importance – to anyone who appreciates the significance of the gift. “The Light of Friendship & Peace” was first introduced to the United States in 2000. It was flown from Oslo with a brief stopover in London before landing in Oklahoma. The Peace Light quickly spread to six states in America’s heartland. Today, the Peace Light makes its long journey from Bethlehem to Tel Aviv to Vienna and finally safely across the Atlantic Ocean to New York City where the Catholic Committee on Scouting of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens welcomes the Light to the United States. From there the Peace Light is shared by hundreds of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and others throughout North America.
