November 11, 2018 marks a very important day in the history of Canada and the history of the world – the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice to end the First World War. The war was devastating in its consequences for Canadian families and did not distinguish between the battlefield and home, young and old, Catholic and non-Catholic.
To mark this important occasion and to encourage all Canadians to reflect on the loss of life and sacrifices made by soldiers and their families, the Royal Canadian Legion has invited churches across the country to participate in the ringing of church bells at sunset on November 11, 2018.
Here at St. Francis Xavier Parish we will toll the church bells 100 times with 5 seconds between tolls starting at 4:59PM to remember and honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
