On November 17th unknown perpetrators broke into the church in Kuckum. It was the second time the church was broken into and various liturgical objects were stolen. A local community offered 1000 Euros as a reward for the replacement of the objects, including the stolen monstrance.

"These gilded metal sculptures and vessels have a rather ideal value, neither artistically nor materially. Nevertheless, they belong in our village, it is our common property - and for us Kuckumers these things build a bridge to our past. "
