Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, is asking that churches across the country ring their bells for peace as the sun sets on Remembrance Day this year—the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

On November 11, 1918, the armistice ending the “war to end all wars” was signed, and November 11 would eventually become the occasion known in Canada and other British Commonwealth countries as Remembrance Day. To commemorate the event, the Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada are inviting all places of worship and religious organizations with bells to toll them 100 times at sunset on November 11, 2018.

All Saints’ Cathedral will ring their bell 100 times at sunset this Remembrance Day.
