Raising the Bells at St Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church / by Ethan Anthony

On May 6, 2015 the bells of the former St. Joseph Church, Ridgway, Illinois were raised into position in the new St. Kateri Church, Ridgway. St. Joseph's was demolished by a tornado in 2012.

A large crowd of parishioners and townspeople gathered to watch the bells hoisted into place in the new church which is expected to be completed by September of this year.
