History of the Memorial Bell Tower:
In early 2001 one of two bells that served the Sacred Heart
Community was found. The Bell is over 100 years old
and honors Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de
The parishioners of Sacred Heart committed to
building a bell tower to house the newly found bell.
When the terrorist attacks of September11, 2001
occurred, leaders in the community requested that
Archbishop Michael Sheehan, Congresswoman Heather
Wilson and others ask the City of New York for two
steal beams from the World Trade Center. The sacred
steel beams serve as a quiet reminder of the death and
destruction that occurred on September 11, 2001, but
they also remind us that out of the dust and ashes we
experience a sense of rebirth in determination and faith.
