I am doing a poll in my diocese to determine how many parishes use bells during Mass at the consecration and how many parishes have many hours of adoration each week. I feel that there is a strong correlation between the two. The heightened sensitivity of a parish for the Real Presence of Jesus seems to lead them to have both.
I live in an area where bells are not that common unless the parish has long hours of adoration each week.
Please comment if there is any problem training servers with the bells or if the ringing of the bells is done by the choir.
I don’t know how to do a survey to determine the popularity of bells in different areas of the US.
