The Bells of Saint Mary’s – Part 3

One day after being blessed in the atrium garden, the four new cast bells from Christoph Paccard Bell Foundry were hoisted into the new bell tower at Saint Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church in Aiken, South Carolina.

R.W. Allen, the general contractor of both the church building and the new bell tower, has uploaded some great drone videos, showing how the bells were raised up by a crane from the atrium garden and installed in the top of the bell tower:

The Aiken Standard was on hand to cover the raising of the bells and have featured a large gallery of photos on their website:
