Some have bats, we’ve got holes! Big, dangerous holes!
The steeple on Saint Mary’s Church, New Haven, CT, was damaged earlier today by high winds and a weakened structure.
The steeple was placed on the church for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Knights of Columbus in 1981/82. The addition of the steeple completed the overall design of the church which was halted at the time that original construction happened in the early 1870s. The Church was dedicated in 1874.
No one hurt with the pieces of flashing falling to the ground and Hillhouse Avenue was closed temporarily.
As a Catholic faith community in Protestant New Haven, Saint Mary’s was established in 1832.
