LACONIA — For the fourth year in a row, Boy Scouts of Troop 68 will be offering the Peace Light flame to the public in brief ceremonies at Sacred Heart and St. Joseph churches in Laconia.
The Peace Light from Bethlehem is a continuously-burning flame, originating from the Grotto of the Nativity in Bethlehem, Israel. Each December Scouts around the world are challenged to help the flame reach as many people as possible.
Distribution ceremonies are scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 14, at 11:45 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, 30 Church St., and Saturday, Dec. 20 at 4:45 p.m. and Monday, Dec. 22 at 6 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church, 291 Union Ave.
In early December, each year, a child from Austria travels to Bethlehem. During a solemn ceremony a candle is lit at the eternal flame and placed in a special lantern and flown to Austria. For the last 25 years, representatives of Scout and Guide associations from Europe and beyond have been gathering in Vienna, Austria, to light their own candles from the Peace Light Lantern and carry it back to their local communities.
Austrian Airlines flies the Peace Light to New York City. Representatives of New Hampshire Boy Scouts travel to New York to accept the Peace Light and bring it back to help the light spread like the branches of a huge tree, rooted in New York City and spreading across the United States.
Ceremonies are non-denominational and all are welcome. For more information about the Peace Light or Scouting in our community, please contact Tara Shore at 524-1367.
