3 Catholic Churches Vandalized In Texas

Three Catholic churches in Texas have been vandalized by pro-choice activists following the news that Roe v. Wade could be overturned.

Graffiti saying “Pro-Choice is Pro-Life” was discovered on the main entrance of a church Monday morning.

it was found by a church member when they arrived for an 8 a.m. meeting, reported Fox News.

Father Peter Damian Harris, pastor at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston, said “It’s very unfortunate that people would desecrate the church like this, take their frustration out on the church”.

The church has decided to change their hours so they open 30 minutes before confession and Mass. It will then close and re-open at 4 p.m. for confession and Mass at 5:15 p.m.

“I’d rather take the necessary precautions, then run the risk of someone coming to desecrate our sacred space,” Harris told Fox 26.

Two other churches in the town of Katy, Texas, were also vandalized. At St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, someone attempted to desecrate the Eucharist. 

At St. Bartholomew the Apostle Catholic Church, individuals tried to remove the tabernacle, which contains the sacred presence of Christ and the Eucharist, according to Harris.

“This won’t stop us,” Harris said. “It propels us to continue to be witnesses for Christ and the world”.

Other churches around the country have been facing harassment and vandalism from pro-choice activists, including some in Colorado and New York.
