Join Bishop McConnell as he blesses and rededicates the bells of Trinity Cathedral in a brief service of music, prayers, and bell ringing on Wednesday, May 2nd at 12:30 p.m. The bells in the cathedral tower were recently refurbished through a gift from a generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
“By blessing the bells we, in essence, also rededicate the cathedral to the city it serves,” said the bishop. As a public sign of this commitment, the blessing will be held in front of the cathedral along Sixth Avenue. Pastors of the four other downtown churches will join the bishop in witness to our common mission.
The service will also feature Trinity’s mysterious “lost” bell, an instrument recently discovered deep in the cathedral’s basement, where it appears to have been crated for a century or more. Cathedral staff are looking into how and why it was originally acquired and its potential future use.
