COVID NYC Update: Archdiocese of New York to ring church bells to honor US coronavirus deaths


NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — #Church bells across #New #York will toll to honor the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the coronavirus pandemic.

#All churches throughout the #Archdiocese of #New #York, including #St. #Patrick’s #Cathedral, will ring their bells #Wednesday at noon to honor the 322,000 people who have died from coronavirus in the U.S.

The archdiocese says the ringing of the bells is meant to comfort grieving families and friends and help everyone move forward together into 2021.

“The ringing of the bells is as much a statement of faith as it is a show of solidarity with our neighbors and fellow #Americans who have faced unimaginable losses as a result of the pandemic,” the archdiocese said in a release. “#Traditionally, the ringing of church bells has been a call to prayer or a signal to the community that a moment of solemnity and significance is taking place. #Most often these are occasions of prayer, funerals, or weddings. #Historically, the bells have also marked moments of both loss and triumph in the wider culture.”
