BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– Bells that have stood silent at Buffalo’s Saint Joseph Cathedral will be able to chime, at a new location in the Queen City.
7-bells from what’s called a Carillon have been installed at Buffalo’s Forest Lawn Cemetery.
They will ring each time a funeral procession enters the cemetery.
The bells were in the old Saint Joseph Cathedral in 1870 but had to be put in storage.
Most were stolen, but eventually, a few were donated to Forest Law and made ready to ring at their new location.
In addition to funerals, They will ring nightly at 9 p.m. in prayer for those who have passed.
