OGDEN --- As the church's new bell was dedicated last week, members of the Glory to God Old Catholic Church were asked to rededicate themselves to bringing their fellowman to Christ.
Archbishop Michael Seneco spoke at a Mass of dedication for the congregation's new bell.
"One bell can only do so much," Seneco said. "You are the bell choir. You are all bells to God. Through talking to people about God, you are the bell choir and it will bring people to church."
In meetings after the bell's dedication, members voted to join the Old Catholic Church. Previously, the church has been independent.
The church is not associated with the Roman Catholic Church.
Seneco spoke of the way the church's new bell, as it rings to announce services and events, will call people to the church.
"As the bell resonates, it calls the people," he said. "It will ring off the mountainside and through Ogden to call people to service."
Seneco said members of the church could resonate in the lives of others by their words and actions.
He said a recent study concluded that 80 percent of people who didn't go to church didn't go because nobody asked them to go.
But he said that could change if members cast off their fears and invited others to be part of the believers.
"We need to leave our comfortable moment, leave our comfortable space," he said, because of God's love.
He said the Christian message was simple because God loves everyone.
"Christ died for everyone," he said.
"I bless you to be the voice of this congregation, that you ring it wherever you choose to be," he said. "All you have to do is ring your bell because the music it makes resonates in our soul."
He encouraged members to be that chorus of love, that chorus of belief that Christians are.
"We are going to bless one bell, but let's make this a caroling tower of 100 bells," he said. "Let's be that bell choir."
