“It’s very unfortunate that people would desecrate the church like this, take their frustration out on the church,” Father Peter Damian Harris, pastor at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, said.
Daily operations had to be altered at the church following the incident.
Its doors were opened 30 minutes prior to Mass and confession and shut immediately following the services, the report noted.
“I’d rather take the necessary precautions, then run the risk of someone coming to desecrate our sacred space,” Harris said.
Two other Catholic churches in Katy, Texas, also fell victim to vandalism, according to the report.
Vandals at St. Bartholomew the Apostle Catholic Church tried to remove the tabernacle.
Intruders at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church sought to desecrate the Eucharist.
The incidents of vandalism likely stem from a Supreme Court leak suggesting the court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to Harris.
“This won’t stop us,” he said. “It propels us to continue to be witnesses for Christ and the world.”
