Several Statues of Virgin Mary destroyed during the Easter

During the Easter Period, three (3) statues of the Virgin Mary were brutally vandalized by unknown evildoers at a Catholic Church in Burlington, MA.

The Priest and Parishioners of the Church were saddened by the destructive acts on the statues, as it is an uttermost disrespect and abuse on their faith as Catholics

Noting that three (3) statues were also vandalized, Father Silva of Saint Margaret’s Church explained to CBS Boston saying; “I immediately noticed the head had been chopped off and as I got closer the hands had been broken off,”.

“The initial feeling was things have been violated in many ways, certainly from a religious and spiritual perspective.”

“It’s sad, disgraceful, disrespectful people who have no faith or no morals to do something like that,” expressed Rick Abreu to CBS Boston.

The Burlington’s Police Chief Kent assured the parishioners that the police will take the crime very serious saying; “We will undertake a thorough investigation and use all assets at our disposal to find those responsible and hold them accountable.”

“This is a deeply disturbing crime committed against a religious institution in our community during a major holiday season,” Chief Kent added.


The next statue below is the Vandalized statue of the Virgin Mary at Norwood, MA, which is 30 miles away from the Catholic church in Burlington. It was Vandalized few days before that of Burlington.

“Obviously, this type of act is particularly disturbing given the timing and the statue that was damaged,” expressed Norwood Police Chief William Brooks.

However, the Catholic Church in Burlington have made-up there mind to fix and rebuild the damaged statues in their Church and declared that they have forgiven the perpetrators of these evil acts.

The Burlington Police pleads with anyone who has any vital information that will aid their investigations towards apprehending the vandals responsible for those evil acts, to call (781)-271-1212.

    I am an Episcopalian. While not a Roman Catholic, I have family who are, and who attend St. Catharine of Sienna, in Norwood, MA. I grew up in Walpole, and know the church well. It is appalling that anyone should damage, vandalize, ruin, the religious objects of another’s faith. Lord, God, help us all!
