Precious item stolen from St. Catharines church

A St. Catharines church is reeling following a break and enter last night.

Officials from the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria report that suspects broke in and stole the Tabernacle. 

Vice-Chancellor Margaret Jong says any monetary value is secondary, as the real value is spiritual as the Tabernacle houses the 'Blessed Sacrament.' 

The thieves were caught on surveillance video which was installed following break-ins in the fall, and the theft of the street lamp post in September 2019. 

Police are investigating. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the NRP.
