Come and help ring church bell 100 times in commemoration of 100 years since end of World War I

At sunset on Sunday, 11 November bell tolls 100 times

Neighbours and parishioners are invited to join in tolling of church bell to mark 100 years since end of World War I (1918-2018)

Greetings to each of you,

As you may know, 2018 marks 100 years since the end of World War I (The Great War).

For this solemn and momentous occasion, Archbishop Fred Hilts, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has invited parishes throughout Canada to toll their bells 100 times at sunset on Sunday, 11 November 2018. This is to remember the sacrifices of those who gave their lives by serving their country in that time of hostilities. It is also to give thanks for the peace we enjoy in our days and to pray for peace throughout the world.
