Catholic Church Bells For Your Mobile

|AD|A Roman Catholic diocese in Austria has released the sound of bells chiming at the local cathedral as a ringtone for the its faithful.

The Diocese of Linz, which ministers over a large swath of northwestern Austria, said Friday it was offering the faithful free digital downloads of the sounds of bells tolling at three prominent area churches as a reminder of the Easter season.

"We wanted to find an original way for people to make Easter and the Lenten season meaningful through the symbolism of the bells," said Stefan Greifender, a diocese spokesman.

Church officials hope the bells ringing on mobile phones "will spread the joy of the season as widely as possible," he said.

Among the bells that can be downloaded from the diocese Web site are those from the famed Immaculata bell of Linz's downtown St. Mary's Cathedral.
