Peace Light Ceremony

With Christmas almost on us I want to share a wonderful opportunity our Pack will be hosting. Each year a Scout from Austria travels to Bethlehem to the Grotto of the Nativity where Jesus was born and brings a flame from the lamps that have been burning for centuries back to Vienna where it is distributed around the world with a message of peace. We are lucky that for the first time the light has come to Des Moines.

On Monday December 22nd we will be having a small ceremony of peace where we will be lighting a candle at Sacred Heart Church with the flame from the Peace Light. All our Scouting families and friends are welcome to join us at 6:00pm for the lighting ceremony and for silent reflection. This is a non-denominational service to reflect on the Christmas season and to pray for peace throughout the world. At 6:30pm a Rosary will be said and everyone is welcome to stay for the Rosary as well or to continue to pray in a manner they see fit.

The lit candle will burn during the entire week of Christmas and you are encouraged to stop by and take a moment of silent reflection during that time. If anyone would like to bring the flame home with them we can make arrangements as well to share the light with everyone.

Time: 6:00pm with Rosary to follow at 6:30pm
