Sacred Items Stolen from Church in Fécamp

Country: France

Date of incident: June 1, 2022

During the night of June 1st, thieves forced open the door of the abbey church of Sainte-Trinité in Fécamp, and stole a sacred item kept in the sacristy. They took two vials containing "Precious Blood" which is believed to be from Jesus when he was crucified. Bishop of Le Havre, Mgr Jean-Luc Brunin, lamented: "This theft is an unbearable attack on the faith of all people who remember the Salvation obtained by the sacrifice of Christ."

Mass was then held "in a reparative gesture and in fidelity to the devotion to the Precious Blood, so dear to the hearts of the inhabitants of Fécamp and its region, the celebration will be celebrated with even more fervor."
