St. Mary's Bells Project
Saint Mary’s Church Bells Project:
Bishop approved proposal of the Fabrication of Automatic Bell Ringing Equipment for St. Mary’s Four Bells.
Project goes back to the year 2013 . Deposit was made toward this project back in 2016.The Verdin VO Striker Units will be custom designed to ring our stationary bells. Strikers are arranged to strike the correct striking point on the exterior of the bell.
Cost of the project is not easy to explain at this point: Includes all necessary work at the tower - almost done at this point; electric work to bring required wires to operate bells; any additional and necessary cost. Cost to the Verdin company is $32,640.00. We are looking for total cost around $37,000
As of October 21 our total donations $27,190.00
Thank You for your support
St. Mary’s Bells Project Updates:
"On August 22, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates a memorial in honor of the Queenship of Mary. This memorial is placed an octave, that is, eight days after celebrating Mary's Assumption into Heaven. The Queenship can be considered a prolongation of the celebration of the Assumption. Mary is Queen and Our Lady because of Christ and like Christ. Vatican II, sanctioning a tradition going back to the fourth century, reaffirmed authoritatively the doctrine of Mary's regality: "When her earthly life was over," she was "exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son." (Lumen Gentium 59)"
We are very happy to share the good news: St. Mary’s Bells Project was completed on August 22 and they are working well.
Beginning of the project goes back to year 2013. Thank You to all who have made already contributions toward this project.
We are accepting donations till October 1, 2020 Only.
Per Father’s request bells are ringing each day for the Angelus at 12noon and 6pm and also on Saturdays at 5pm and Sunday at 9:15am.
