New Bells for Notre Dame's Birthday

 Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris will celebrate it's 850th anniversary in 2013 with many celebrations through the of the biggest ceremonies will be the blessing and installation of the new bells which have just arrived in Paris.

In 2012 as part of a huge project the 4 old bells of the North tower were removed, melted down, and recast into a new set of 8 bells and are now ready to be rehung in the North tower. A 9th Bell called Marie is also being cast and will hang with Emmanuel in the South tower.
