Bellringers

Bellringers

The traditional term for bellringers is "Changeringers"

On most Tuesday evenings throughout the year, the local ringers practice for two hours, beginning at 7 p.m. 

The Cathedral bells are rung every Sunday, for about half an hour before each of the two principal morning services. The bells are also usually rung on New Years Eve, Victoria Day and Remembrance Day (muffled). They are rung on request for weddings and funerals (when it is customary to muffle the sound of the bells) and for other special occasions. 

Visitors are welcome to climb 71 steps to watch during Sunday-morning ringing, and for the first hour of practice nights.

We celebrated our 75th anniversary in July 2011.

In September, 2016, we hosted the North American Guild of Change Ringers Annual General Meeting.
