In solidarity with our friends at Notre Dame in Paris, and seeking the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary for all those affected by the tragedy, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will toll its bells 50 times (representing the 50 Hail Marys of Our Lady’s Rosary) at 6:43 p.m. this evening local time to mourn this tragedy, and to mark the beginning of a new day of hope and resurrection for Notre Dame Cathedral.
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception encourages those whose lives have been touched by this iconic Cathedral, to support the effort to resurrect and rebuild this church which has touched the hearts and souls of the world by visiting www.SupportNotreDame.org.
