Cathedral Bells to ring out in thanksgiving and blessing: St Peter’s Day 2020

For the first time in more than three months the bells of St Peter’s Cathedral will ring out over the city at 12 noon on Monday 29 June 2020 (St Peter’s Day).

Along with the whole State the bells were silenced in March as the world struggled to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

As South Australia moves into Step 3 and life slowly returns to ‘normal’ Cathedral bell ringers will ring a Quarter Peal in thanksgiving:

  • For the opening up of South Australia
  • For the dedicated work of all front-line workers including doctors, nurses and carers; supermarket staff and those who have continued to empty rubbish bins,
    provide fresh water and power …..
  • For the leaders of State and City, church, school and community organisations

Members of the public are invited to gather in the Parklands opposite the Cathedral to enjoy the ringing.
