Change Bell Ringing
Trinity's steeple is filled with bells—23 to be exact! In addition to 11 chiming bells that mark the hours, Trinity has the only set of 12 change-ringing bells in the United States, a gift of British businessman and philanthropist Martin "Dill" Faulkes in 2006. They are uniquely beautiful and require extensive training to ring. A full peal can last between three and four hours. Trinity's change-ringing bells are rung for civic events and weddings, as well as every Sunday. New ringers are always welcome.
