Ring Bells, Ring, Ring, Ring

The bells removed a few weeks ago from Our Lady of Lourdes have been returned, polished up, ready to go back into their home, calling the faithful to prayer.

However, in our research we cannot find that they were every consecrated or Christened. (and yes, bells can be Christened.

So join us tomorrow after the 11:30 Mass, for the Blessing and Consecrating of the Bells, which will be returned to the tower on Monday morning. It is one of those rites that we don't get to see all that often. I will try to capture video of it and post here later that day.

Have a good rest of the weekend.

(And remember, it's Manhood Sunday, as only real men wear Rose!)

Gosh Father, I always thought that color was pink!

I don't have Rose, nor do the parishes, so unfortunately, its violet today for me.

Actually, the color is called "light red" for you men out there!
