Thanks to your generosity, our 100 year old carillon has been totally modernized and revitalized. This work included:
- replacement of cast-iron ball clappers and headpieces for all bells, and return/counter springs,
- replacement of playing keyboard and adjustable bench,
- replacement of transmission actions for all bells,
- retuning the middle-range Dutch bells, and
- repositioning the upper 26 bells to the south side of the bell chamber and hanging them on a new steel frame to improve sound egress and to provide optimal positioning for the new actions

This was the first project enabled by Our Third Century Campaign and was completed in 2022. Thank you!
