After 115-year US stay, ‘Bell of Peace’ back home
Written by Park   

BAUANG, May 23, 2016 – After being kept for 115 years on American soil, the historic San Pedro bell was welcomed back home with nothing short of a fiesta-like celebration in the municipality of Bauang, province of La Union, earlier today.

Dubbed the “Symbol of peace”, the bell hung outside New York’s West Point’s Most Holy Trinity Catholic Chapel since 1937 before its return to the Philippines.

After a farewell ceremony last April 29 in West Point where it was rung for one last time, Bauang resident welcomed the bell’s return with festivities complete with colorful banderitas and musical and cultural performances.

Bishop Rodolfo F. Beltran, Bishop of San Fernando La Union, commenced the unveiling ceremony by celebrating Holy Mass, which was attended by representatives from the West Point community, U.S. veterans, local officials, church leaders, and parishioners.

West Point Returns San Pedro Bell to PH

WEST POINT, New York — A church bell that once belonged to a Catholic parish in Bauang, La Union, rang for the last time outside a Catholic Chapel here. The bell is returning home.

After being away for more than a hundred years, the San Pedro Bell – baptized and named after a patron saint – received the blessings of a Catholic chaplain during a valediction ceremony at the Most Holy Trinity Catholic Chapel last Friday, April 29.

Nearly a hundred members of the Filipino American community, Philippine Embassy officials, diplomats and scholars, and U.S. Military Academy (USMA) cadets, staff, officers and guests, gathered for the send-off.

“Today is a joyous and happy day for all of us,” said Col. Matthew Pawlikowski, USMA’s Catholic chaplain who officiated the Catholic Mass and led the procession to the site outside the chapel overlooking the Hudson River where the bell rested.

Sending the San Pedro Bell home is “the right and honorable thing to do,” said USMA Chief of Staff Colonel Wayne A. Green in his remarks. “And so we’re here today, in the spirit of friendship and cooperation with our friends from the Philippines, to say farewell to the San Pedro Bell, which has been part of the West Point community for many years, and return it to its rightful place.”
