CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The first Catholic church construction on Cleveland's east side in decades has a new way to ring in the development.

Bells have been installed at the new sanctuary of St. Agnes-Our Lady of Fatima parish on Lexington Avenue in the Hough neighborhood.

The $2.5 million construction project introduces a new church building to the redeveloping area.

The bells, like many of the items used in the construction, are re-purposed items from nearby churches which have closed.

The bells came from the tower at Holy Trinity-St. Edward parish on Woodland at East 72nd Street, which closed in 2004.

The new 350 seat sanctuary is scheduled for dedication on Wednesday, November 25.
