Vandals strike at New Jersey church
January 27, 2014
Vandals seriously damaged several statues at Catholic parish churches in Vineland, New Jersey in incidents reported on January 23 and 24.
The vandals apparently targeted the two churches on consecutive nights. A statue of St. Joseph was cut in half, another of St. Francis lost was left armless, and several others badly harmed. A spokesman for the Camden diocese condemned the vandalism as “a violent act against the statues and what they represent.”
