UPDATE: Rather than ringing the bells at noon as we did on the first Wednesday, St Mary’s bell will now ring along with our neighbours’ cheers every Wednesday at 7pm.
Beginning April 1 and on each Wednesday until the health crisis is declared over, Bishop Logan McMenamie is inviting all parishes of the Anglican diocese of Island and Inlets to join together in ringing their church bells for five minutes to say thank you to Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, and all front-line workers for all that they are doing to keep our communities safe during these difficult times.
Parishioners are also encouraged to to go out onto their front steps at this time, bells in hand, and join in if they can. If they don't have bells, they can use pots and pans!
Let's show our support and appreciation to help bolster spirits and let these folks know they are thought of every week that this continues.
