Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris will celebrate it's 850th anniversary in 2013 with many celebrations through the year....one 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
