*Links:

The church Website used to have an extensive photo album on the construction of the tower and carillon, though there were no captions.  The History page has a photo of the building, but it does not show the bell tower.  A PDF of the church history mentions the dedication of the bells.  A Location page offers a map of the campus, but that is missing from the Website.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
