The original statue of the “Sacred Heart of Jesus” sat on a pedestal outside the rectory of Saints Peter and Paul Church for more than a decade before it was torn from its base in the middle of the night.
Who swiped their savior? That’s what members of one Brooklyn church are asking after a thief stole a statue of Jesus. People in the area said they can’t believe someone would do something like that just days before Christmas.
Parishioners were outraged when the head of the beloved statue outside the St. Nicholas Church in Palisades Park was knocked off by vandals earlier this month.
“This is very sad indeed,” parishioner Gina Odorisio said. “This is a wonderful symbol for all those who pass by.”
