Bishop Shocked By Burglary At Church

MOUNT CARMEL — A religious community in Northumberland County is feeling a loss after several items are stolen from their church including a religious statue.

Police say many items were stolen at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Mount Carmel including a life-size statue of the Virgin Mary.  The bishop at this Catholic Church of the East says he is heartbroken because that statue and all of the other items are very important to the church

Mass at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Mount Carmel is every Sunday at 3 p.m.  Every week, Bishop Ramzi Musallam says he walks into the church and prays in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

“I came in and I see our statue, our life-size statue of Our Lady of Fatima is gone,” Bishop Musallam said.

The bishop says the five foot statue wasn’t the only thing missing this weekend from the church.
