New Church Bell Tower Blessed
On the afternoon of the 27 January 2018, the new carillon bells of Barasoain Church was blessed in a ceremony held on the church plaza. The blessing ceremony was presided by The Most Reverend Bishop Jose Oliveros of the Diocese of Malolos.
The new bell tower will be tolled instead of the bells in the old tower. It was installed last December through the efforts of Architect Aaron Solis and engineers from the Italian company Belltron which was commissioned to supply the bells and install it in the church.
The new bells feature state-of-the-art technology in the industry of bell-making. They are computer-controlled and are programmed automatically to toll in melody at certain times in a day.
It was first used during the Misa de Gallo and Simbang Gabi masses of the recently concluded Christmas season.
