  • Thank you for your knowledgeable insight! Are you a ringer at St Clement’s?

  • This is the back six of the eight bells ringing rounds and call changes. The third clip is not the bell tolling, but the three and the seven being rung down (out of the ringing position). The three is then chimed during the Mass, at the Prayer of Consecration. The seventh bell is also the clock bell that strikes the hours. During ringing the chiming hammer for the clock is turned off.
