While Thomas was out of town today, Jim agreed to step in to lead the band. With folks arriving at 9:15am six bells were raised. By 9:30am we were ready to go with six ringers. Jim informed the band as interim director that we’d be adhering to Simple Sunday ringing. The instructions were simple but with only one 2 minute break, we had all six bells going in rounds and simple call changes. Thanks to Jim, Barbara, Eoin, Marg, Judy and Jody … the neighborhood, parishioners and visitors got to hear a lovely sound of steady ringing and then a triumph of bells being brought down all at one time. It was a glorious ring to St. Francis of Assisi on this his Feast Day.
