St. Joseph Church in New Haven, Connecticut, was forced to close its doors temporarily this week after becoming the target of vandalism that included “satanic symbols” painted on the church’s front door.

The church announced the hateful crime in an Instagram post asking parishioners for prayers.


The attack on St. Joseph, the pastor noted, “follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala. The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”


The statue of the Virgin Mary in Colorado Springs was tagged with the word, “redrum” (“murder” spelled backward, and a reference to the Stephen King novel, “The Shining”) in what authorities say was an act of simple vandalism.
