Another Boston-area church has been the victim of vandalization after a statue of the Virgin Mary at a Billerica church was found vandalized Wednesday morning, WHDH reported.
The statue at St. Mary’s Church on Boston Road was decapitated and had its hands cut off.
WCVB reported that police believe the vandalism happened late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
This is the second incident of vandalism of a Boston-area church’s religious iconography this week. A similar case of statues having their hands and heads removed happened a mere 4-mile drive away in Burlington’s St. Margaret Parish.
Additionally, WHDH reported that another case of vandalism happened at St. Catherine of Siena Church in Norwood over the weekend.
