Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral welcomes the bells of the carillon.

On Friday, Nov. 4, Bishop Michael F. Burbidge blessed 10 bells that will be part of the 50-bell carillon at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral in Raleigh.

The arrival and blessing of bells marked a joyful and significant step toward calling the faithful to worship for Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral.

Bishop Michael F. Burbidge recently blessed 10 of the 50 bells which will perch high above the city of Raleigh in the cathedral’s bell tower. The blessing took place at the construction site.
