49 Bells Project: A Call to Prayer & Action (FINAL)

  • Sanctuary, St. Luke's Church 2000 Stover Street Fort Collins, CO, 80525 United States

See the video from The Coloradoan here.

All are welcome, every week, to join in prayer at 1 p.m. in the Sanctuary during the ringing of the bells. We begin with the Prayer for the Human Family, from the Book of Common Prayer, p. 815.

Starting July 6 and continuing through November 2, church bells across Colorado will be rung 49 times on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm, one toll in remembrance of each person killed in the Orlando shootings on June 12. As we toll the bells, we will hold in prayer not only those killed in Orlando, but those killed, injured, and bereaved in San Bernardino, Aurora, Newtown, Dallas, and countless other communities across our nation.

Some of us are pro-gun and some of us are anti-gun. Even so, as people of faith we share in common an aversion to gun violence, and we believe there are many others in our community and across our nation who share this conviction.
