Hoa Nguyen Montclair Catholic church replaces two vandalized statues.
Bishop Gerald Barnes blessed the new monuments after a Tuesday, Feb. 11, Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes
On Feb. 25, 2019, about $5,000 of damage was done after a person vandalized the two stone statues about 4:30 a.m, police said.
Someone drove up in a car and got out holding “an unknown object” that was used to strike the two statues, a police statement said. After determining they were damaged beyond repair, the church raised cash and received insurance money to replace them.
Barnes blessed and dedicated the statues at the end of a Mass celebrating the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes.
