Are the church bells rung both before the beginning of Mass and after the conclusion of Mass?
Can a non-member ring the bells?

Many places don't have bells. Of those that do, ringing before is probably more common than both before and after. Though an individual parish may have its own rules, there is no universal law which would prohibition a non-member from ringing bells.

Yes Father. Our Church ring before. And when my wife and I are walking towards the Church for the 7am Mass and the Bells are ringing...I have questioned how long it will be before the heathens come for our skin. :-)

Yes Father. Our Church bells ring before Mass. There's been a few instances when my wife and I are walking towards the Church {for the 7am Mass} and the Bells are ringing and echoing loudly through the streets...I have questioned; how long it will be before the heathens come for our skin. :-)

Many places have laws banning church bells, or restricting the bells from being rung at certain times of day, especially in residential areas. I used to live right across the street from a Catholic parish, and it seriously would have not exactly have made me happy if they had been ringing the bells at 6 AM when I was trying to sleep after getting him from work at midnight.

I was awakened one Christmas morning at about 6:15 by the church bells going off. Our sacristan for the 7:00 a.m. Mass was trying to turn the Christmas lights on and got the wrong remote. He started hitting buttons trying to cancel the bells. I arrived in sweats and stocking feet to hit the cancel button repeatedly on the main console until I had canceled everything he had queued up. I'm sure the neighbors appreciated the concert.

Under the traditional blessings of Church bells, they received prayers for spiritual warfare or properties of exorcism – just like the traditional Holy Water blessing. When these bells ring, the sound should be painful for demons, helping to keep them away.


Here is part of the prayer:

Quote:
At its sound let all evil spirits be driven afar; let thunder and lightning, hail and storm be banished; let the power of your hand put down the evil powers of the air, causing them to tremble at the sound of this bell, and to flee at the sight of the holy cross engraved thereon.



Some of you may be attending a parish with bells blessed under the old rite!

There's a church in New Orleans (St. Patrick's downtown) where they ring the bells during the consecration - not just the little bells, but the big church bells. It gives me the chills every time. I rather like that notion. :)

Also, I think most parishes I know with "bells" nowadays don't have real bells, but some sort of electronic simulation system. I know at the very least that's true with my parish, because there was a week where they were malfunctioning and the bell sounds would stop abruptly and restart and all kinds of thing.

My old Newman Center at UL had real bells though, or at least a real bell, because the chord to ring it was visible when you walked into the church. That bell always was manually rung immediately preceding Mass (except, I think, Easter Vigil and Midnight Mass) as well as when a new pope is elected. (When the white smoke came out of the chimney at St. Peter's Basilica for Pope Francis's election, my pastor at the time ran out to the bell and started ringing it immediately - he bragged that his parish beat the Cathedral less than a mile away, which I think was mildly unfair given that the Cathedral bells are harder to reach and farther away from the rectory than the bells at my Newman center).

Most parishes with bells also have them ring during daylight hours on the hour every hour and potentially as much as every quarter hour.

I would appreciate living near a church that rang the bells for the Angelus.

My daughter’s town sounds the tornado warning alarm at noon every day. Will that do?

Peregrinator, How will this do? At St. Peter Catholic Church in Wisconsin, the church bells ring the Angelus at twelve noon.
