Our Lady of Mt. Carmel to Debut New Church Bells

the-southern-illinoisanHERRIN, Illinois — About a three-month silence from the Our Lady of Mt Carmel Catholic Church bell tower is expected to end today when refurbished bells ring from a remodeled bell tower.

“They’ve been refurbished and sit higher in the bell tower where they are more noticeable and more audible when they ring,” said church Monsignor Ken Schaefer.
