The bells ... they could be cute, or quaint. They toll the hour, like a good church bell should, which is nice. But then you check your watch, and realize they are 7.5 minutes late. "Oh that's odd," you think to yourself. "Maybe my watch...More

I don't know, but the bulletin is posted outside the church and the rectory is on the grounds about 100 feet from the church entrance. Sorry, I can't help.
