Joy Bells – Sunday 19th March

On Sunday 19th March the Church Bells in St Fethlimidh’s Cathedral and churches across the land will be rung at the same time between 11-11:30.

The idea has arisen as the bells of Waterford Cathedral (known as the Joy Bells) – which have been undergoing repair and have been silent for the past few years – are going to be rung again on Sunday 19th March when former President Mary McAleese will be present.

With so much uncertainty, fear, division, hared, disillusionment and even despair in our world at the moment the ringing of the bells throughout the land would be a Christian witness and proclamation of faith, trust, love, reconciliation and joy.

It would be wonderful if other churches in the Diocese agreed to add their voice!
