Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all WRS in-person ringing and related activities are currently suspended.
We are, however, having some online virtual practices using “Ringing Room.”
Please email info@washingtonringingsociety.org for additional information.

In early 1983, the Cathedral Ringing Society, which had been founded in October 1963 after the installation of the Cathedral bells, was renamed and reorganized as The Washington Ringing Society (WRS) in recognition of the new bells installed at the Old Post Office Tower. This organization is based in Washington DC and is dedicated to English change ringing.  Members of the WRS range from age 15 to 80 and come from many different walks of life that include teachers, computer programmers, lawyers, students, doctors, archivists, and musicians. 

Below is a brief video that shows members of the WRS ringing at the Cathedral and describes change ringing.
