Vandals pee in holy water of Catholic church

| July 29, 2011

Vandals broke into a Catholic church in North Rhine-Westphalia and peed into the bowl of holy water, the police announced on Thursday.

Officials at the St Anna Church in Ascheberg, south of Münster, were horrified to discover the destructive rampage, which saw statues and other religious artefacts damaged.

“This was serious vandalism,” said parish secretary Marlies Stratmann.

The vandals struck between 3:30pm and 5:40 pm on Tuesday. As well as urinating in the holy water, they also broke four statues of apostles in the knave of the church, as well as damaging a bishop’s staff, two swords, an incense burner and the church’s newly renovated pipe organ.
