Tabernacle Broken in Romainville

Country: France

Date of incident: January 11, 2022


Vandals wrecked the church of Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois in Romainville on December 11th. The Diocese wrote in a press release, "a trunk was torn off, the tabernacle was fractured, the sound equipment, stolen and the cupboards of the sacristy, stripped of several sacred vases". This act of desecration expressed a total lack of respect for these religious symbols.
