Peace Light  Celebration and Concert, Friday, Dec. 2, 7:30pm

If you would like to celebrate the Advent Season (the four weeks prior to Christmas) in a special way, plan to attend the Peace Light Celebration and Concert in Lindenhurst on Friday, Dec. 2 at 7:30pm, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 210 South Wellwood Avenue, Lindenhurst.

The light originates from the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and makes its journey to the United States each year thanks to International Scouting and Austrian Airlines.

You may actually bring a lantern to accept the light and bring it back to your unit or to your church.  If your parish plans to participate by having its own celebration, please get in touch with the Catholic Committee on its Facebook page.

There is a dessert fellowship following the celebration.  Please bring a dessert to share.

Come celebrate together as we prepare for Christmas in this special way!

Class A uniform. Flyers are available HERE and HERE.

 

Thanks, Nancy Rosiello
