Our bell tower is back!

It was taken off for repairs on February 19th, 2018
and put back on the first week of June, 2018.


After almost 50 years, St. Stephen's iconic Carpenter Gothic bell tower had deterioriated significantly.

                      There were pieces missing.                The bell rope was frayed, timbers were rotting.

                The cross on top had deteriorated, and it and the support posts had extensive damage.




Our steeple was repaired and our bell was being recoated. 


Then the Bell was Blessed and a Giant Crane put it back in place.

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. As of Tuesday, February 13th,2018, we had raised more than $28,000 of that goal.


Please help us ... "Ring The Bell". Should we be lucky enough to surpass that goal, the amount above $30,000 will be applied to the next $170,000 goal for the repairs, entry, and paint.
