Handbells

 
The bells of the church raise their voices to call worshippers to celebrate communal prayer, herald weddings, toll for funerals, ring the canonical hours, announce the elevation of the host, and proclaim the Gloria. St. Bernard’s recently-acquired handbells add another voice to its family of bells – all we need is you to make them ring! If you can read music, we can teach you how to ring melodies and changes in one of our two newly formed handbell choirs.
