A bell is no bell till you ring it,
A song is no song till you sing it... (Oscar Hammerstein, composer)
We have a Suzuki 25-note, 2-octave set of hand chimes. These lightweight, durable and portable alloy chimes have squared tone chambers which can be handled without gloves. They have a lower, sustained sound than our 25-note, 2-octave set of KidsPlay
® color-coded handbells which we use with our younger ringers.

Our kids handchime and handbell choir is called cuori BELLissimi, and plays semi-regularly at our 11:45 
AM Mass; the Lighting of the Trees & Angels; the 5:00 PM Christmas Eve Mass; and in December goes "carol-ring" throughout the neighborhood. Rehearsals are conveniently scheduled in the Good Shepherd on the same Wednesday afternoons our Faith Formation classes meet, between school hours and those classes.
