The Bells of Milwaukee celebrates restoration of historic convent bells

The bells before restoration.
Years after the bells that once chimed atop the Notre Dame Convent and Motherhouse on Ogden Avenue struck a note with local writer Michael Horne, they are being rededicated this week after having been restored by a group Horne co-founded with Lakefront Brewery's Russ Klisch and The Pfister's Peter Mortensen.

The 19th century bells, named St. Ignatius and St. Catherine, currently reside at Convent Hill Gardens, 455 E. Ogden Ave., where they will be rededicated at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, July 11, in a free ceremony officiated by Rev. Tim Kitzke, the Vicar General of Urban Ministry for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
