St. Mary's Edgerton and St. Thomas Wainwright joined churches across Canada in ringing their bells 100 times for peace at the going down of the sun (1634 hours) on November 11, the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada initiative emulated the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end.

St. Thomas and St. Mary parishes concluded their bell-ringing ceremonies with prayers and by singing “Amazing Grace.” Submitted by Allan Samm, St. Tom's Cub Reporter
