Priest Spoke out About Church Vandalism

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: April 7, 2020

The Church of St. Edward was found vandalized with graffiti on the 7th April. The Priest of the Church, Father Callum Brown, expressed his concern.

Father Callum Brown: "I'm greatly disappointed by this senseless act of sacrilege. However, I can't help but feel sorry for the individuals who did this. I'd like to meet them and would make myself available if they would like to talk anything through and find it in their hearts to apologize. I'd ask the parents of the kids that make up the 'L block posse’ to take these young people in hand and not allow them to wander the streets of Lees wreaking havoc late at night during this particularly difficult time. It is Holy week, the most sacred week of the church's year."

He added: “It is, therefore, imperative we forgive the perpetrators in the manner of our Lord, who forgives us our sins and transgressions so freely.” (The Oldham Times)
