Church Bells to Toll for Newtown Victims



    Church Bells to Toll for Newtown Victims
    A man holds a sign while riding on a procession through one of the main streets in Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Conn., during a procession toward St. Rose of Lima parish cemetery before burial services for Daniel Gerard Barden, one of the students killed during the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

    Churches across the nation prepare to mark the one-week anniversary of the massacre by ringing church bells 26 times at 6:30 a.m. PT Friday, NBC News reported.

    After Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy called for a moment of silence earlier in the week, the National Council of Churches said many of its 100,000 congregations would participate in the bell-ringing.

    Several San Diego churches said they will participate but on Pacific time following the request by Gov. Malloy
