The church Website has a tiny photo of the building on the home page, but says nothing about the bells, and appears not to have been updated since Oct.2018.

A news article (26 Jan 2021) reports on the removal of the bells, but may be unreadable beyond the first few lines. Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Watervliet) bellfoundry.
