The first peal - and an appeal

129 years ago today the Cathedral's bells were rung for the first time. Today they still call the faithful to Mass each Sunday evening, and are used for special occasions. A single bell is often rung at the consecration during Mass, and the angelus bell rings three times a day. The bell-ringing team are always on the look-out for new members (Catholics and non-Catholics are all welcome) and would welcome any enquiries. Why not give it a go? Contact us if you'd like to know more. The bells are featured today on Billington's Blog - click here.
