Purpose:

To musically and prayerfully support our liturgies through handbells and handchimes as a performance instrument; to foster fellowship amongst and stewardship of its members; to serve as outreach within the parish and in the community beyond; through teamwork required of ensemble membership, teach & reinforce concepts of accountability, responsibility and respect

Who can help?

Beginning and experienced ringers commit to an ensemble's schedule according to their time and talent; communicate absences responsibly; be willing to learn and do what is required by the needs of the liturgy/music/ensemble.

When and Where?

From Labor Day-ish to Pentecost/SPS graduation, rehearsals are generally once a week after school or during the supper hour (approx. 90 minutes). We ring during specific weekend liturgies approx. once a month.
