The Bell Tower

The bell tower as seen from the Pilgrims' Cloister.

There are four bells in the tower of the church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The biggest, Joseph, weighs nearly half a ton (450kg) and is rung every day for the Community Mass and for the Angelus which is said morning, noon and evening.

"So that all those who are faithful to their calling are constant in their practice of the Faith"
The Roman Pontifical,
Rite for the consecration of bells
