As you know, the St. Paul bell, installed in 1926, has been silent for many years because the wood framing for the 3,000lb bell is failing and in urgent need of replacement. In addition, the bell tower’s masonry and parapet also require significant repair, and these are critical issues of safety and stability.

The structural work is scheduled to be complete by the end of November 2022. Once that is finished, the final step will be to restore the bell’s ringing mechanism so we may once again proudly ring the St. Paul bell!

The total cost is budgeted to be $487,200, and the Parish has been approved for a short term loan from the Archdiocese to cover up to seventy-five percent of the budget. While we are fortunate to have additional income from the leasing of the school building, we still need the assistance of the St. Paul community to fund this project and repay the loan.

St. Paul parishioners have a long history of giving generously to support our parish – please take a moment to prayerfully reflect on how you can  contribute.
