Bells of Peace – Sunday, November 11th at Sunset

Bell Will Ring Out at the Church of St Paul

1918-2018
Bells of Peace – A Remembrance of those who served in the First World War

An Initiative of the Royal Canadian Legion

 

Bells call us to wake, to pray, to work, to arms, to feast, and, in times of crisis, to come together.  “On November 11, 1918, the ringing of church bells erupted spontaneously across the country, as an outpouring of relief that four years of war had come to an end.” (BBC news).  The Bells of Peace initiative is designed to emulate that moment of remembrance in honour of our veterans who served in WWI.

 

There will be a gathering at the Church of St Paul in Barriere just after 4:00 pm to participate in the Bells of Peace Initiative.  Starting at 4:18 pm, which is “the going down of the sun”, until 100 peals are reached, individuals will take turns ringing the bell that is located at the front of the church.

The bell that had called the faithful of Clearwater United to worship until the congregation sold its building and the bell was moved to Barriere.
