What is it?
The Festival of the Bells is our largest, most important event of the year as it commemorates the founding of our beautiful and historic church 247 years ago. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and to participate. This event is for people of all ages.
The festivities include several food booths, live entertainment, games and bounce houses for the kids, and a full bar cantina for the adults.
Other highlights include: – The Blessing of the Bells which is the only time all year that all five Mission bells are rung, including the original bell dating back to 1802 – A private Garden Party with Bishop McElroy- Dancing to The Legends on Saturday night – The Anniversary Mass with the full choir … and… – The Blessing of the Animals
The Festival of the Bells is a great community-building event and we hope to see you there!
