(PROVIDENCE, RI)  As a sign of faith and unity during this difficult and unprecedented time, the Most Reverend Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, is asking that the bells of all Catholic churches be rung for five minutes every Sunday morning until the Coronavirus crisis is over. 

“This symbolic gesture will speak to our whole community of the presence of God, will help to unite the Diocese spiritually, and will signal hope for our people, reminding them that their churches are still there, eager to welcome them home in the very near future,” said Bishop Tobin.

Catholic churches are being asked to ring their bells for approximately 5 minutes each Sunday morning at 9 am, beginning this Sunday, March 29, 2020.
