1915 church bell to ring at St. Paul's Catholic


Jeff Roetting tests the new church bell at St. Paul's Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, after it was hoisted into place by a crane on Thursday. Cast in 1915, the bell, named "Francis," once hung in a now-closed church in Pennsylvania. The church is constructing a new bell tower around it with a brick exterior to match the church and St. Paul's school buildings. Roetting is a service technician for Verdin Bells and Clocks of Cincinnati, Ohio.
