Church Bells for Aleppo

Posted: Oct 18, 2016

St. Paul’s joins Church Bells for Aleppo


St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Thunder Bay, has joined hundreds of churches around the world who are tolling their bells at 5 pm every day until UN Day October 24th for the victims of the Aleppo massacre. 

The bells are tolling as a reminder of all those who have lost their lives in Aleppo.  This initiative began with Lutheran churches in Finland and is now including many churches around the world.

St. Paul’s will be ringing the church bells every day at 5 pm for 4 minutes.  The bells will be tolled by one of the parish bell ringers, each and every day, until United Nations Day on October 24.

The funeral toll will remind people of the bombing of hospitals, and the suffering of innocent civilians in Aleppo.

Other churches in Thunder Bay and in Canada are encouraged to join the bell ringing.
