Marian grotto desecrated at DC suburban parish
January 28, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Four statues at the Fatima grotto at Nativity Catholic Church in Burke, VA, have been vandalized and damaged beyond repair.
“The Grotto is a place of prayer, peace, and healing,” the parish said in a statement. “We pray for the person or persons who desecrated this sacred space and for peace in our world and the end of violence.”
Since May 2020, there have been at least 117 acts of vandalism, arson, and other destruction at parishes and other Catholic sites in the United States.
