A Campaign to Raise Money for the Restoration of the Clock in St. Paul’s Church
St. Paul’s Church was built in 1903 with the prayers, dedication, and hard work of area parishioners and priests. Arthur S. Redfield raised money to have a town clock installed in the steeple for all to enjoy. The clock no longer functions. Most Holy Trinity Parish would like to install an electronic actuator which will allow the clock to function again and the bells to toll. The cost of this project will be $16,000.
We have commenced fundraising for this endeavor and through the generosity of some area businesses we are on our way, but there is more to be done. For more information about the campaign please download the printable pledge card*. Thank you for any support you can give to our restoration effort.
*(Update 9/9/2016: the link to the pledge card has been removed because the campaign has finished successfully! Thank you for your support!)
