We join Sister Cities International for this meaningful initiative with the simultaneous ringing of bells across our two countries. Here in San Antonio, the bells of our historic San Fernando Cathedral will ring on Wednesday, August 5 at 6:15 p.m. and Saturday, August 8 at 9:02 p.m., in commemoration of the longstanding peace between the United States and Japan.
A number of local organizations with ties to Japan will also observe these moments of reflection including: Naoko Mitsui Shirane Foundation, Summer of Service - SOS, CompassionNET San Antonio, and the Japan-America Society of San Antonio.
Join us in this special commemoration by ringing your own bells during the above times or by simply tuning in to observe and reflect on the importance of this momentous occasion.
