Bethlehem Peacelight coming to Bloomingdale
Posted in the Schaumburg Forum
#1 Dec 10, 2012
Each year, a child from Upper Austria fetches the light from the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. The light is then flown to Austria from where it is distributed at a Service of Dedication to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries for use at ecumenical services throughout the Continent. Scouts and Guides can then take the light on to houses of worship, hospitals, homeless shelters, old people homes, prisons, and places of public, cultural and political importance - to anybody who appreciates the significance of the "gift".
This year, the Ukrainian scouting organization PLAST will bring the Bethlehem Peacelight flame to St. Andrew Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 300 E. Army Trail Rd. Bloomingdale, IL 60108 on Monday, December 17th, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. The Peacelight will burn continuously through Ukrainian Orthodox Christmas on January 7, 2013. Other Christian churches and organizations are encouraged to come participate in the transfer and bring lanterns in order to take the flame and distribute in their communities. There will be a short prayer service following the transfer.
