Bells Ring Again in Chapel for the First Time in Many Years!
The St. Mary’s Chapel Bells rang again for the first time in many years on Easter Sunday after a special Restoration Project Fundraiser that collected over 30,000 from parishioners who donated towards this beautiful project. Thank you to all who donated!
The Bell Project was quite extensive as there were many components needing repair in order to get them fully operational and ringing on a timer at pre-selected times throughout the day.
The St. Mary’s family really came together on this project that brings back a part of our 17 1 year old history of calling others to Christ. “The bells are a a sign of the restoration to come,” says Father Bryan. ” They remind us of our past and ready us for our future.”
The next time you are on the St. Mary’s Campus, stop by and listen for the bells. They bring a smile to all who hear them!
St. Mary’s will ring the bells on a daily basis:
15 minutes before every mass calling people to worship.
At the start of every mass.
At Noon and 6 p.m. for the Angelus prayer.
At 9 p.m. to remind us to pray before bed- our night prayers.
And the bell strikes each hour from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
