The ancient St John’s calling bell was tolled for five minutes this morning at 10.55am before the one-minute UK and Europe-wide silence to remember those who died in Friday’s terror attacks in Paris.
Robin, our Rector, confirmed the bell rang to signify St John’s solidarity with the French nation and those that lost their lives and were injured. To date, 132 people have died following the six attacks across the French capital.
St John the Evangelist, Dumfries, is a parish of the Scottish Episcopal Church also serving Methodist parishioners locally.
