Catholic Action League prods authorities after vandalism of Boston churches

Frustration builds as attacks increase, arrests lag

The Catholic Action League pressed state and local authorities to crack down on church vandalism after two churches and a Catholic elementary school were hit Friday in Boston, saying such incidents are “growing exponentially.”

The churches — St. Teresa of Calcutta Church in Dorchester and St. Monica-St. Augustine Church in South Boston — and the St. John Paul II Catholic Academy in Dorchester were found Friday with their door locks jammed by a sealant or putty, in addition to other damage.

It was the sixth attack on St. Teresa’s since July — the church doors were smeared with eggs and trash three times in January — and the 14th incident in the last 11 months in Massachusetts. Yet so far, nobody has been arrested, according to the league.
