Compass - Bells of St Leonards
Compass tells the story of six bells rescued from Wales to be installed in a Sydney church in time for its centenary celebrations. St. Leonard’s Catholic Church in Naremburn turns 100 this year and, for the first time in its busy history, bells will be ringing in the mass. Parishioners are eagerly awaiting the arrival of six refurbished bells (originally cast in 1866) on their way by container ship from Wales. But some local residents, concerned about the noise they will make, have yet to be convinced of their communal merit. Meantime a group of parishioners are being trained in the genteel art of bellringing, a first for this congregation. Compass follows the journey in time for St Leonards’ 100th anniversary celebrations.
