The church Website has a History page with photo of the building and its tower, but the bells are not mentioned anywhere.

A Wikipedia article on the history of the church has a photo of the building, and mentions the gift of the bells.

The ACNY page about the church has a drawing of the church on some pages; the About Us page has a brief history, which mentions the "octave of bells in the form of a carillon", and a tiny photo in the upper left corner is clickable for a larger version which shows the 3-stage octagonal tower.
