LA Parish Vandalized, Desecrated

St. Andrew's Church in Los Angeles, a parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, has been vandalized by an intruder. The intruder, whose identity is as of yet unknown, trashed the church's sanctuary, tore the altar out and dragged it into the nave, and scattered the reserved Body of the Lord and the sacred vessels on the sanctuary's floor.

Despite the desecration the parish proceeded with the celebration of the Lord's Transfiguration following the visit of area police to the church. More here.
