Full Peal Attempt

Wednesday, January 1, 2020 | 12:45pm

In collaboration with the National Bell Festival, members of the Washington Ringing Society will attempt a full peal on the Cathedral bells this New Year's Day. Ringing will begin following the noon service at approximately 12:45pm. If the peal attempt is successful, the ringing will last between 3 and 3.5 hours, or 5,040 changes, from start to finish.

The sound of the peal bells will be made audible inside the Cathedral nave for this special occasion. Visitors are encouraged to mindfully listen and explore the Cathedral grounds on a self-guided meditation walk.
