Church bells

From Tea at Trianon. A joy of living in my town is I can hear (pictured at top) the old Presbyterian church’s bells ring the hours and the Catholic church’s in the next town the Angelus.

Byzantine Rite thurible with bells:

Sanctus bell adopted by a Byzantine Rite church:

The late Mgr Stephen Dutko at the consecration.

In the Church of England the vicar technically is supposed to ring the church bell twice a day to call the villagers to Morning and Evening Prayer (the office).
