For more than two years there has been a ring of bell ringers in the colony. Bell-ringing lessons for convicts are taught by the bell ringer of the Nikolsky temple complex in Krasnoyarsk, Andrei Popov. Under his leadership, the convicts learn the crimson ringing, evangelism and even the alarm.

The belfry on the territory of the colony was built by the hands of the convicts in 2018. It is adjacent to the local chapel.

As the mentor of bell-ringers Andrei Popov said, the bells in the colony are unique even for Krasnoyarsk:

– These are the first products of Yaroslavl craftsmen that appeared in our city. Bells have a special timbre, they have a very beautiful and velvety sound compared to others.

Now nine convicts are mastering the difficult bell-ringing business, one of whom is a girl. The requirements for students are strict: a sense of tact, rhythm, hearing and, of course, diligence. The bell-ringer is a one-of-a-kind profession, and the convicts hope that after their release they will easily find the use of their skills. By the way, two former convicts who have mastered the basics of bell ringing in KP-19 serve in the churches of the city of Krasnoyarsk.
