The bells and the steeple at the Saint-Paul church in Bas-Caraquet

You will find below a few pictures of the steeple and the bells that will soon be installed at the Saint-Paul church in Bas-Caraquet.

The steeple that will soon be erected in front of the church will be 50 feet high with a luminous 12 foot cross, an identical reproduction of the one that once stood on the old church. The bells will also be illuminated in the evening.

The three (3) bells that will soon be installed in the steeple of the church were made in France by the Bollé Company in 1955. They are high quality bronze bells with the following specifications:
