Event launches effort to display bells of St. Louis Church

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Assessin

One of the four bells, cast in 1916 at the world-famous Paccard Bell Foundry of Annecy, France, is removed from the church’s tower last year following its shuttering by the Diocese of Portland.

Community members are invited to join Mayor Jonathan LaBonte, members of the Auburn City Council, and members of the original 1915 donor families for an “Exhibition of the Bells” of St. Louis Church on Saturday, September 20 at 11 a.m. The event will take place at Cote Crane Company, located at 2980 Hotel Road in Auburn.

The program will kick off a community campaign to raise $12,000 to purchase the bells and house them as part of a local heritage monument in the New Auburn neighborhood where they have touched the lives of so many for the past 100 years.
