The Rouen Archbishop baptised yesterday, Sunday, April 3, 2016 the bells that will added to the restored bells of Notre Dame.
It has been a long time that we had seen anyone baptised at this weight in the nave of the cathedral of Rouen: Romain is 5400 kilos. His sister Cecilia, 3500, and William only 1350 … These are the three bells, the largest of the new bells restored for the bell tower of Rouen Cathedral, baptised by Bishop Dominique Lebrun, archbishop of Rouen, this Sunday, April 3 2016.
Before a full church of parishioners, he recalled that “the bells are realizing the encounter with God and men. They are also an expression of humanity that seeks and creates. A concert is always a quest, a challenge: to create feelings. “
