Mangalore: Bishop Aloysius Paul D'Souza Condemns St Alphonsa Church Attacks


Media Release

Mangalore, Nov 5: The Catholic Church dedicated to St Alphonsa in Kankanady was attacked by a miscreant on Thursday November 3 night. The holy monstrance was desecrated and statues of Jesus were damaged.

"It was a deplorable act," said Bishop Aloysius Paul D’Souza of Mangalore, "When Christians live in harmony with people of other faiths, such attacks on churches and Christian Institutions disturb harmony."

The Bishop called upon people to maintain peace and harmony in such difficult times. "It is very sad and painful to note that for the past three years a series of attacks have taken place on churches, convents, places of worship and Church properties but no arrests were made and no action was taken against the miscreants."

He also said that those responsible for the attacks must be brought to justice and compensation be paid.
