Our steeple was repaired and our bell was being recoated.

The Bell Tower replacement is just one part of the repairs and renovations of St. Stephen's. There is also redwood siding and trim to replace, work on the front entry and painting.

 

The total estimate for all of the work is $200,000. Of that, $30,000 is for Ring The Bell, which was raised in 2018.

 

Please help us raise the remaining $170,000 for the repairs, entry, and paint.
