Abbot John Pereira OSB said that the monks are very pleased with the completed restoration of the bell tower at Mt St Benedict. Renovations commenced February 23 to address the damage and cracks to its structure, and were completed March 8. The cost of the bell tower project was TT$180,675 and funding came from the Mt St Benedict Monastery.
The project adds a “brand new light” on the Mount, Abbot Pereira told Catholic News via phone last Monday. Renovation encompassed crews of Danclar’s Painting Services firstly erecting scaffolding, pressure washing, priming and painting the bell tower.
