Cardinal André VINGT-TROIS, archbishop of Paris, will bless the nine new bells, on the occasion of the feast of the presentation of jesus in the temple. This exceptional day will be emphasized by the Youth Jubily gathering in Notre-Dame thousands of children from Paris .

The bells will be shown until the end of february in the nave of the cathedral, including some late opening, in order that everyone can admire and appropriate this shared heritage, before they go back in the towers.

 

They will ring for the first time for the solemnity of Palm Sunday, saturday 23rd of march 2013.
