Catholic Action League prods authorities after vandalism of Boston churches


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.
