Young Adults from Fermoy Church of Ireland Parish Respond to Appeal to Ring Bells in Solidarity with Refugees and Migrants

The younger adults  attending Christ Church Fermoy on Sunday, 19th March, were called upon to fulfil a surprising task – they rang the Church bell in response to the ‘Joy Bells’ initiative started in Christ Church Cathedral, Waterford.  Fermoy Parish was delighted to be able to join in this act in support of the call for solidarity, justice and truth with those across five continents to share the message of love and welcome to refugees and migrants, and against racism and xenophobia.

In Fermoy (to take turns ringing the bell for 15 minutes) were (l-r) Adam Douglas, John Teeling, Jilly Fleming, Rachel Smith and Dave Johnston.
