Tolling of St. Thomas Church Bells - in response to the current pandemic, Blue Zone of Corry has asked our parish to ring its church bells each day to remind those in our community to stop and pray for the end of the coronavirus. Our bells will ring daily (beginning on 4/8/20) at 2:20pm for a duration of two minutes and twenty seconds, which represents the first death from COVID-19 in the U.S. on February 20 (2/20) at 2:20pm. Please remember to keep all those suffering, dying, or on the front-lines battling this virus in your prayers.
