Ring the Church Bells! (en/fr)

Ring the Church Bells! (en/fr)

Bells will ring on July 28
For many years, the United Church of Canada in Grand-Pré rings its church bells on July 28 at exactly 5:55pm to pay tribute to the thousands of Acadians who were deported in 1755. The Société Nationale de l’Acadie (SNA) representatives have become aware of this tradition and have decided to implement the gesture throughout Atlantic Acadia and even elsewhere in Canada and the United States. Many parishes have decided to join the movement with this symbolic gesture that pays tribute to the determination and bravery of our ancestors. On July 28 listen for the bells!
