The Peace Light will arrive at St Joseph’s
During the 10:00 AM Mass on December 8.

Each year, a child from Upper Austria fetches the light from the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born.  The light is flown to Austria where it is distributed to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries.  It is then transported to New York with the hope that the light will spread like the branches of a huge tree across the continent.

St Joseph’s Polish Apostolate of the Diocese of Camden invites you to share the Peace Light.  After Mass you may infuse a never lit candle with the Peace Light at our St John Paul II altar (where we continuously infuse new candles as needed to keep the Peace Light going all year).  You can then extinguish your candle to be relit later to share with others.

We thank the Garden State Council of the Boy Scouts of America for sharing the Peace Light with us.
