Point with a center of latitude 48.1659931 and longitude 16.357457.

Once again the Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs (PPÖ), the National Scout Organisation in Austria, is hosting the central ecumenical service to help share the Light of Peace of Bethlehem with Guides and Scouts from across Europe and the world.

Under the motto "Building Peace with Courage and Creativity", which is inspired by verses in the Gospel of Matthew (Mt, 5, 9-10) and linked to the the annual theme of PPÖ "Bunt" ("colourful"), this year's ceremony will be held at the Syrian Orthodox Church of Mor Ephrem in Vienna's 10th district on 10 December 2016.

The Scouts and Guides of Austria invite delegations from all assocations (one per country) to travel to Vienna to fetch the Light of Peace during this event and then to carry it home to their local Groups, towns, villages and families as a symbol of warmth, friendship and peace.
