The clock in the tower of the church in Elene has been restored. She fell silent two years ago.
“A check in March 2020 found that the mechanism of the tower clock, which was installed in 1996, was very badly worn. As a result, the clock indicated different times in the 4 wind directions of the tower and eventually the clock came to a complete stop during the corona year 2020.” let Eddy Serbruyns know from the Kerkfabriek. Today, after more than 2 years, the tower clock has been restored and the clock on the 4 sides of the tower shows the correct time again. Just in time for Elene Fair, with a mass on Thursday September 8, 2022 at 7 p.m. for Our Lady of the Nativity, patron saint of the church of Elene, and Monday, September 12, 2022 at 10 a.m. the Soul Mass for the deceased parishioners. The Kerkfabriek thanks the City Council for making the repair possible and is also pleased that Pastor Deken Hans Vandenholen can still experience this before he transfers to the Dekenaat Aalst.”
