Last night at Grace Church at 7:15 PM; the bells from the tower toned 64 times in honor of the 64 years since the bombing of Hiroshima. Most bells will toll today at 8:15 AM to honor the moment. However, Hiroshima is 13 hours ahead of our Eastern Standard Time and to coordinate with the exact timing of the bombing; we must ring the bells the night before when it is, indeed, the hour of 8:15 AM in Hiroshima.
Today's schedule at Grace Church:
The Mass of the Transfiguration will be celebrated this morning at 6:30 AM
The Novena for Peace begins tonight at 6:30 PM
The Daily Regular Schedule of 11 offices will remain the same. See side bar for details.
Blessings to you on this Feast of the Transfiguration.
