*Links:

The latest redesign of the church Website has eliminated a former page about the bell tower, and no information about the bells or their schedule of operation is to be found elsewhere.  However, the About Trinity page does have a photo of the bell tower, and the Worship Services page has an aerial photo which shows the location of the tower with respect to the church (foreground) and school (background).

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
