Restored Carillon rings out the Angelus and Hymns over Scranton

(from the St. Thomas More Newsletter)

Regular worshipers at our Parish are accustomed to the sound of bells heralding each Mass, but that has been the extent of their use. Recently, Fr. Bergman invited the former Sacristan of St. Joseph Church to re-program the carillon to ring the Angelus every day at noon and 6 p.m., after which three hymns are played at random. Appreciative calls to the office (and no complaints!) from our neighbors began almost immediately.

St Joseph Scranton towerWe are grateful to once again have the ability to offer this subtle reminder to our neighbors that the Church beckons them daily to worship their Creator.

    The October issue of More News contains the only reference I have seen to the AGM of the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society since it took place last month. Apparently the Bergman and Campbell families from St Thomas More, Scranton were in attendance. Surely there is more to say than that. This was announced as a relaunch, with a widening of its mission.
