Ephraim church rings bells for COVID victims

The bells ringing from Ephraim Moravian Church on Sunday gave those who heard them an opportunity to reflect on all that has happened in the past nine months. Pastor Dawn Volpe had the church bells ring 300 times on Sunday to represent the 300,000 American lives lost to COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. Door County itself has lost 13 people to the coronavirus. Volpe says she wanted to do something to commemorate the lives of those lost because of the disease that has kept Ephraim Moravian Church’s doors shut.

The bells rang at Ephraim Moravian Church to commemorate 200,000 lives lost back in September. Volpe hopes they do not reach the next milestone and they can soon worship together. Churches in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and other parts of the country have done similar gestures to commemorate the lives lost to COVID-19.
