Princely Family Receives Peace Light

Yesterday, the International Peace Light arrived in Liechtenstein and the country's scouts brought it to the people, among them the Princely Family. A group of scouts was welcomed at the chapel of Schloss Vaduz by Prince Hans-Adam II and Princess Marie. Now in its 30th year, the Peace Light from Bethlehem campaign was originally organised by the Austrian Broadcasting Company (ORF) and was part of a large charitable relief mission for children in need in Austria and abroad called Light into Darkness. Since then it has greatly expanded and the light is now travelling from Bethlehem, where it is lit by an Austrian child in the Natavity Grotto, to more than 30 countries each year.

The full gallery of visuals is available at Vaterland.
