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.
