Vernal Equinox Bell Ringing

On Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 the 5th annual Vernal Equinox Bell Ringing will be celebrated in honor of global peace and care for the planet. Declared by proclamation in 1970 by United Nations Secretary General U Thant, the Vernal Equinox recognizes that “We are one human family and have only one Earth”.

The Community is invited to participate in celebrating the Vernal Equinox and recognizing local and global environmental champions. The program takes place from 5:00-6:00pm and features the ringing of the Gloucester UU Church’s Paul Revere Bell at 5:58pm, the moment of the equinox. Simultaneous events will take place with the ringing of the Peace Bell at the United Nations headquarters in New York, NY and Vienna, Austria, and at other locations around the world.

This is a family event and is open to the public
