Restored Bell Tower

This is St Peter's Catholic Church located on Bathurst St at Bloor St west and it has been here since 1925 when it replaced a smaller church on the site. Unfortunately after all those years, in 2012 the bell tower was in danger of collapse and so the congregation raised over $400,000 to fix it and save the church.

That stone look is well worth saving.
I saw your comment yesterday and I hope everything is going well.

It's a fine building and tower is beautiful. $400 grand is a lot of money, though. For a bell tower... :)

It's an attractive building so I can see why the congregation wants to fix the bell tower.
