For the second consecutive year, Danbury Peace Light Coordinators, Gary Allen Prybylski and son Gary Allen Prybylski Jr., are bringing the light to Danbury and hoping to expand its reach.
This year’s local Peace Light service event will be held at Saint Peter Church on Main St., Danbury, on Friday, December 7, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Aside from the inside service, an outside bon-fire (managed by Scouts) with caroling and refreshments like hot cocoa (served by the Saint Peter Youth Services Group) and even a Danbury Fire Truck will be on site.
“It is customary for guests to bring a candle or lantern … and receive the light. They then go on to bring the light back to their own individual, church, organization or homes to share the light further with neighbors and friends, invited Prybylski.

About Peace Light
Each year, a child from Upper Austria fetches the light from the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. The light is carried in two blast proof miners’ lamps on an Austrian Airlines jet from Tel Aviv, Israel to Vienna, Austria, from where it is distributed at a Service of Dedication to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries. Austrian Airlines then flies the miners’ lamps containing the Peace Light from Bethlehem to New York City.
