*Links:

The church Website has a photo of the church facade, but no clue as to where the bells are located.  However, they are mentioned in the Parish History, though the date given is 1922 and the bellfoundry's name and city are mis-spelled.

The school Website says nothing about these bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Watervliet) bellfoundry.

Ranking among all North American chimes by size (number of bells).
