Vandals use statue of Virgin Mary to smash door, break into Tulsa Catholic church

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 02/19/18

Details: 

Tulsa Police are looking for whoever vandalized Saint Augustine Catholic Church on Apache near North Lewis Saturday. No one was injured but the front window has been shattered and so was a statue of The Virgin Mary. Wenona Hurd has been going to the church for more than 20 years. She was on her way inside to help set up when she saw the broken glass and called police.

Read on. Otherreports indicate the vandals used the statue of Mary to smash through the glass front door of the church.
