Four statues at St. Joseph Parish in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, were vandalized overnight between Dec. 10 and Dec. 11, and police are asking for help identifying a suspect caught on camera.
Father Stephen Leva, the pastor of the church, said in an online post Dec. 11 that the four statues affected were of St. Anthony, St. Joseph, Our Lady of Lourdes, and the Holy Family.
Leva told CNA in an email Wednesday that the statues of St. Anthony and St. Joseph are “completely destroyed.” The statue of Our Lady of Lourdes was tipped over, but landed safely on the grass without damage, he added.
The statue of the Holy Family is bent to the side, but is being kept in place by a metal bar, he said. No graffiti, or other messages, were left on the scene. It’s unclear what the cost of damages will be, he said.
