Disgusting. I hope cops catch the perps.
This would be a chalice, beside a pedestal paten topped by an asterisk.
Pretty low to be breaking into a church and stealing the communion set.
I am hoping they were stolen merely for their potential retail value.
Back in the 1980’s, I knew a member of that church who was active in Young Americans for Freedom and other conservative causes.
Altar room? C'mon. Could this refer to the Sanctuary? I swear, the ignorance of today's "journalists" is monumental but never more so than when reporting on religion, and the Christian religion in particular.
