Recently, the Church of Our Lady of Damascus has witnessed a most welcome improvement – an electronic bell system. This systen greatly enhances the performance of the three bells which have called the faithful to the Church’s functions for the last sixty years. Apart from enabling the conventional manual ringing of the three bells, this electronic system offers a wide variety of pre-recorded melodies which automatically play on particular days of the ecclesiastical calendar. This electonic bell system was installed by the Italian company ALFA GROUP S.R.L. of Pozzuoli, Naples. Parishioners, Valletta residents and visitors to Valletta have welcomed this improved bell system with great enthusiasm.
