WELLAND, ON, October 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A vandalism attack that left St. Mary’s Catholic Church property defaced with anti-Catholic and anti-life graffiti has left parish priest Fr. Raymond Fenech Gonzi not only with a troublesome, costly clean-up job but several mysteries.
Not only is he puzzled why someone would spray an anti-Catholic obscenity on the rectory’s garage door, as well as “Happy abortions” on the side of the adjacent church hall, where Welland Port Colborne Pro-Life association has an office; but he also wonders why the church was vandalized sometime between Wednesday evening, when he came home, and Thursday morning, when the secretary discovered the graffiti.
The police are not looking into it. Because this isn’t a hate crime obviously.
Staff Sgt. Paul Rogers said it’s unlikely that the culprit will be caught, “unless someone saw something and comes forward at some point.”
In the meantime, he said police are asking neighbours to “keep an eye out and if they see something give us a call.”
