One of the frequent questions that is asked about the new St. Anthony Church is “Will you use the old bell?” Yes! The bell tower is being replicated and the 117 year old bell will “toll” again.
The 600 pound bell was installed in 1903 and the Lake Nebagamon “Enterprise” stated “The new bell is a good thing as it calls on our Catholic friends. reminding them of their Sunday duties.” The bell will remind us once again in 2021 and can be rung at weddings and other events. More of how we are keeping the spirit of the old church alive in future weeks.
