Older bells removed from the tower to prepare for final expansion with new frame and chimestand; not yet known whether they were replaced. Electropneumatic action from organ replaced that chimestand, and was in turn replaced by an electric action with independent keyboard in 1998. Lightning destroyed that action in summer 2010; replaced in fall 2010 with MIDI controller system from Verdin. Parish previously owned the site now occupied by Immaculate Conception RC, and sold those bells with that property.
