Church Bell Rings After Three Decades of Silence


Martinsburg area churches were asked to ring their bells Sunday evening at 7 o'clock for three minutes as an act of faith and solidarity against the coronavirus. St. John United Church of Christ on East Julian Street in Martinsburg was a participant. The church bell, struck in 1859, had not rung in more than three decades. Parishioners tested the bell the day before, only to have the rope break.
