Bishop Terence has asked all the churches of the Middlesbrough Diocese with bells to ring them on Easter Sunday morning at 10am as a sign of hope and joy in these difficult days. Of course we have more bells than most at the York Oratory Church of St Wilfrid. It may be that we can get a small team of our regular ringers to come to ring if they live near enough and are in the same household. If not, we may have to do it ourselves! This afternoon we had a practice. You can hear and see our efforts here. I think it's fair to say our style is more "continental" than English.
Our scheduled 10am live streamed Mass will begin five minutes later, at 10.05am, and we will try to make it possible to hear the bells over the internet.
