NEW YORK – The “Bell of Hope” at New York City’s historic St. Paul’s Chapel has tolled in remembrance of Norway’s massacre victims.

Norwegian Consul Aslaug Nygard (OW’-slahg NEE’-gohr) attended the ceremony Wednesday in Lower Manhattan.

The bell was a gift to New York from the city of London a year after 9/11.

It has been rung after the bombings in London, Madrid, Mumbai and Moscow; for the Virginia Tech massacre victims; and on 9/11 anniversaries.

St. Paul’s Chapel served a half-million hot meals to workers during the World Trade Center recovery operation.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
