Arabic Church Vandalized

| July 1, 2012

POTTSVILLE — The flags in front of St. Ann’s Cathedral in Pottsville are new. The old American and Palestinian flags were damaged by vandals sometime Sunday night, according to church leaders, who said the flags were torn to the ground.

“Actually I was called in and when I arrived here to the cathedral, the flags were all outside and they were torn out from where they were mounted to the building, as like a hate crime,” said Bishop Ramzi Musallam.

St. Ann’s is an Arabic Catholic church. It has been located in Pottsville for about a year. Bishop Musallam said the flags were torn down last year too.

Back in April, he said the other Arabic Catholic church, Our Lady of Fatima in Mount Carmel, was vandalized as well. A sign out front was smashed with something heavy, and then broken off its base.
