Ernesto Villalva and Dario Chavez, both of Beloit, Wisconsin, repair the bell tower of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church on Friday in Herrin.

Father Ken Schaefer, pastor at OLMC, said the tower was built in 1924 — the same year as the church.

The pastor said the repairs to the tower should be completed before Easter Sunday.
