The Peace Light has burned for over 1,000 years continuously in Bethlehem. Since 2002, the flame has been transported to JFK in New York to be spread by youth volunteers throughout the United States.
The QOP Community is Honored to be a Recipient!
Queen of Peace Parish has once again shared in the distribution of the Peace Light, in the spirit of Jesus Christ, whom Scripture calls the “Light of the World” and the “Prince of Peace.” The flame has been brought to our parish by a distributing youth group from St. Joseph Church in Oradell and has been received by a delegation of our teens representing the QOP Youth Group and CCD Confirmation candidates on behalf of all of the youth and teens of the parish. The flame will be kept burning in the blue votive candle holder at the Queen of Peace Altar to keep the hope of peace alive in our community and the world! We share this light as a reminder that Christ came as the peace of the world. Peace be with you this Christmas!
