Since the 1970's Butch Bos has been taking care of St. Anthony's sound system and carillon bells. In fact, he's been taking care of audio needs of churches in the Quad Cities for many years. People in the know about this type of work will tell you very quickly, "Call Butch." His focus is more on satisfying customers than making money.
Over the last year or so, Butch has had several personal setbacks. His home burned to the ground and he was diagnosed with kidney cancer. He says that he would appreciate any prayers for his continued recovery. Thank you, Butch!
As you can see in the pictures above, Butch was here this week getting our carillon bells ringing. We're now programmed to strike on the hour, before Masses, three times a day for the Angelius, and four times a day for songs. If you have any special song requests (no Elvis), let us know!
