OUR BELL TOLLS IN SOLIDARITY

Christ Church’s steeple bell will ring out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday morning at 10:30 to voice our parish’s solidarity with all humanity during the coronavirus crisis.

The bell will ring in the evening as soon as the town clock at First Presbyterian chimes the hour in solidarity with people in other communities and on Sunday to mark the time we would normally gather to worship.

Each of those days we will post a specific focus for that day and invite and encourage you to pause and join us. If you are able, go outside and ring a bell, bang a pot, clap, do anything to join us in making sounds as you join us in prayer and reflection.

We will livestream this prayerful sound  on Facebook so that those not in Hudson can join us in honoring  those in the medical field, caregivers, first responders and other essential workers.

We will continue to livestream our Sunday services at 9 a.m. The services will appear on Facebook and—soon—on our parish website.

Be safe everyone. Stay apart so we can all be together again. And remember that I will be posting on Monday, Wednesday Friday and Saturday (for Sunday) information on who we are praying for on that particular day.—Jamison Teale, sub-deacon
