For Whom the Bell Tolls (an update)...

Many hear the sweet sounds of bells from our tower and praise the Lord we received them by Christmas!  We are not done with the project, however. Due to COVID restrictions, certain technicians still can't safely travel to Connecticut. Our real bell is not yet sounding. As the project progresses, we will hear more and more from the Carillon. Thank you for your continued patience and support. Click here as historical information gets posted about our Carillon and bell.

Here is the inscription on the front of our Meneely bell (pictured in this post):

AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
HONOREMQUE BEATAE MARIAE VIRGINIS
ET SANCTI PATRII HUJUS
ECCLESIAE PATRONI
ANNO DOMINI 1900.

to the Glory of Almighty God
and in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and of Saint Patrick
Patron of this Church
in the Year of our Lord 1900.

(inscription on the Cathedral bell and translation by Fr. Peter)

In Christ,
Michael Steven Lianos
Director of Music and Organist
