"1826 In der Revolutionszeit hatten auch die Hainfelder ihre Glocken abliefern müssen. Die erste neue Glocke mit einem Gewicht von 11 Zentnern trägt die Inschrift. „Ich wurde gegossen in Frankenthal im Jahre 1826… Für die Gemeinde Hainfeld.“ Im Jahre 1843 kam eine größere von 18 Zentnern („Angeschafft durch freiwillige Beiträge sämmtl. Mitglieder der kath. Kirchengemeinde Hainfeld 1843, gegossen durch die Gebrüder Lindemann in Zweibrücken“) und eine kleinere von 5 Zentnern (mit der gleichen Inschrift wie die größere und mit Christus- und Muttergottesbild) hinzu."

"1886 „Heute (3. Juni) um 7 Uhr morgens schlug der Blitz in den hiesigen Kirchthurm und zündete. Der Thurm brannte ab bis an den Glockenstuhl.“ (Pfarrer J.B. Gehrig im Pfarrgedenkbuch)"

"1917 Die 1826/43 von der Gemeinde angeschafften Glocken müssen erneut zum Einschmelzen abgeliefert werden."

"1921 Hainfeld bekommt anstelle der 1917 abgelieferten Glocken ein neues Geläut."


"1948 Hainfeld erhält anstelle der 1942 abgelieferten Glocken ein neues Geläute, das dritte innerhalb der letzten 125 Jahre. Die Glockenweihe findet am 27. April statt."

"1826 During the revolutionary period, the Hainfelder had also had to deliver their bells, the first new bell weighing 11 centimeters bearing the inscription" I was poured in Frankenthal in 1826 ... For the municipality of Hainfeld. "In 1843 came a larger one Of 18 centners ("acquired by voluntary contributions, including members of the Catholic church community of Hainfeld in 1843, cast by the brothers Lindemann in Zweibrücken") and a smaller one of 5 centners (with the same inscription as the larger and with Christ and Mother God image) . "

"1886" Today (June 3) at 7 am the lightning struck the local church tower and lit. The tower burnt down to the bell-chair. "(Pastor J.B. Gehrig in the parish church)"

"1917 The bells, which were purchased by the church in 1826/43, must be delivered again."

"1921 Hainfeld gets a new bell instead of the bells delivered in 1917."

"1948 In 1948 Hainfeld received new bells, instead of the bells delivered in 1942, the third within the last 125 years.
