Ringing in Springfield

In a show of unity, along with giving thanks and gratitude to our healthcare workers and first responders, the City of Springfield is partnering with churches and other places of worship in Springfield to ring their bells at 7:00 p.m. every evening for 1 minute beginning this Sunday, April 12.

Residents are asked to join in as well, ringing bells from their homes or cheering, as a sign of collective support and encouragement.

The initiative, “Ringing In Springfield,” is a reminder to residents that we have healthcare workers and first responders who risk their health and well-being to serve and protect others during this coronavirus pandemic. They are our first point of contact and do this day-in and day-out, despite the possibility of coming into contact with the coronavirus.

Throughout time, our places of worship have been an unwavering source of faith and strength in our lives and the heart of Springfield. Whether we were grieving, celebrating, looking for guidance or direction, we look to our faith for strength and encouragement. During this unprecedented period of health and economic crises, it is important for us to show support for those that serve our community so courageously. Everyone can affirm the message that we can best help each other and our families stay safe by “Staying at Home” during this health emergency crisis.

“Ringing In Springfield” will take place every evening at 7:00 p.m. beginning Sunday, April 12 until the State of Illinois’ “Stay at Home Order” is lifted.
