Detroit church begins bell tower, steeple work

Here’s the church and here’s the steeple, which is getting some much-needed TLCfrom a dedicated group of people.

The effort to restore the 200-foot steeple and bell tower of the historic St. Joseph Oratory church began Monday. Church officials said the work should be finished by late summer.

The work is part of the three-year, $2.5 million historic renewal campaign the church launched in October 2017.
