Ecumenical Peacelight Ceremony 2017
Last month, Tobias (12), from Upper Austria, this year’s #Friedenslichtkind, travelled to Bethlehem to light the official Candle of the Peacelight at the eternal flame in the Chapel of Nativity.
“I was very excited to have been selected to light the candle in Bethlehem and I am very happy to help carry this sympbol of peace to our families, friends and communities in Austria, Europe and around the world”, commented Tobias, who is a volunteer in the youth section of his local fire brigade.
Launched more than 30 years ago by ORF Oberösterreich (Upper Austrian Broadcasting Services), this is the 29th time that the Friedenslicht der Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs (Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs) is passed on to #Scouts and #Guides from around the world during a central ecumenical ceremony in Vienna, Austria, on 16 December 2017.
