Thieves hit another church

Another Catholic church has been attacked by thieves.

A five-foot high (152cm) brass candle holder, St Mary’s church in Carterton last weekend.

Church lay pastoral leader Sharron Penny said the candlestick had been in the church for “generations” and was an important part of the church’s liturgy and heritage.

Penney said the candlestick was used at a funeral service on Friday, September 5.

She replaced the candle on the Saturday morning, but when congregation members arrived to set up for Mass that evening, the candlestick was gone.
