SAN ANTONIO -- Vandals damaged a statue at a Catholic Church on the South Side.
Members of Saint Henry’s Catholic Church on south Flores are disturbed a sacred statue of Jesus was defaced. Father Bob Hogan believes vandals used a heavy hole cover to a city water line to knock off the head and arm of the statue.
An employee at St. Henry's Catholic Church
's Catholic Center for Charismatic Renewal on South Flores told us someone knocked off the head of the statue Sunday night. The head was found behind the statue.
This is heartbreaking to Father Hogan and members of the center who say they cherish this spiritual statue which was a gift to the church from the community.
“All this area was built through donations of people. It makes me sad that someone has anger or they just want to do something to be destructive,” said Father Hogan.
Police are still searching for the vandals. They're hoping someone will come forward with information. Father Hogan hopes they can get enough funds gathered to get the statue repaired.
