Maybe this person was having a bad day? Things weren’t going quite right on Tuesday and the melodic sound of church bells drifting into his/her home pushed them over the edge and angrily open the 311 app and file a report.
First thing to note about this report, if you’re gonna rat on the local neighborhood church – maybe double check on the name. It’s not Gates of Heaven. It’s Gate of Heaven.
The City of Boston “noted” the case. Not sure if the sound police will be sent to Gate of Heaven to ask them to keep it down with their loud church bells.
The church bells at both Gate of Heaven and St. Brigid can be heard throughout the day – often they are played in memory of a loved one. Are they loud? Not really – sometimes in the midst of your day, you notice them. Sometimes they go unnoticed. Are they annoying? We guess that’s subjective. But we can think of a lot more annoying sounds like kids playing and laughing outside. (JK )
Hopefully today will be a better day for this Southie resident.
