Saint Michael Joins English Churches and Cathedrals to Toll Bells for Notre Dame
The difference of 24 hours. Original post on twitter.
DALLAS, TX In a little less than 24 hours, at 1 p.m. CDT, Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church will join many around the world, answering the call of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, for cathedrals and churches across England to toll their bells for 7 minutes at 7 p.m. tomorrow (UTC/GMT -5 hours), Maundy Thursday, April 18, 2019. Saint Michael is a member of the Anglican Communion, via the Episcopal Church USA. This initiative has been suggested by the British Ambassador to France, Edward Llewellyn, and is offered as a mark of solidarity following the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. Saint Michael is proud to stand with our French brothers and sisters and those around the world as we both mourn this immense loss of cultural and liturgical history, and also raise our hearts in thanksgiving that there was no loss of life or complete destruction.
