Bethlehem Peace Light Once Again Arrives in Parma!                          

On Monday evening, November 30th, for the 8th consecutive year, the Bethlehem Peace Light arrived at our parish from New York City via Vienna, Austria from the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. It will remain lit on the Tetrapod until Theophany, January 19th.

 

The Peace Light first came to the United States in December, 2001, following the attack on the Twin Towers in

New York city. It now travels across the country, ending in Seattle, Washington and south into Texas, then Mexico. This year, 3 representatives from Toronto, Canada, were also present when the Light arrived in our parish. Everywhere that the Peace Light is taken, the following is spoken:

“We receive this Light as a message of Peace to everyone –

May all those who accept this Light pass on that Peace.”
