Church revives ancient tradition during virus outbreak

* Father Lee singing the Angelus Prayer at noon today. 
St Collen's has brought back a time-honoured tradition during the coronavirus outbreak - the ringing of the Angelus Bell.

Vicar, Father Lee, says: “Many of us rely on alarms and alert sounds on our mobile phones to remind us of things. The tolling of the Angelus Bell, which goes back to the 11th century, was to alert people of a time of prayer.

“At 12noon each day the Anglus Bell will ring (three sets of three with a pause in between, followed by nine rings).”

The first session of the bells being rung while Father Lee sings the Angelus Prayer was held at noon today.  

It was streamed live on the Facebook page of Llangollen Group of Churches.

Below is the Angelus Prayer.
