Saturday, June 20 will mark 100 days since the Coronavirus began in Bristol. The City, along with local churches, has created a “100 Day” bell ringing community event to unite the Bristol community.
Churches throughout Bristol will be ringing their bells on Saturday, June 20 at 4 p.m. as a means of calling the community to pause to remember the lives affected by the virus and to unite to recognize the heroic efforts of our healthcare workers and first responders who have been working on the front lines since the pandemic started almost 100 days ago.
The schedule of events is as follows: 4 p.m. all churches throughout Bristol will ring their bells for 5 -7 minutes. At 4:30 p.m. the community is asked to gather at St. Gregory Church parking lot where community leaders will address attendees and recognize the efforts of the many individuals, first responders, healthcare workers, those afflicted with the coronavirus, and their families.
St. Joseph’s Bell Choir will gather and perform in front of Bristol Hospital.
