Kingston church ransacked during burglary

From The Diocese of Bethlehem-

Police are investigating a burglary at Grace Episcopal Church that was ransacked with communion wafers thrown on the floor and vulgar graffiti painted on walls.

The Rev. John Franklin Hartman said the church administrator discovered the burglary and vandalism when she arrived at the church on Butler Street just before 8 a.m.

“When she arrived for work, she went through the front door and she noticed immediately some pictures that were on the wall were on the floor,” Hartman said. “When she went to her office, her office had totally been ransacked. The doors had been taken off the frames.”

Police Det. Thomas Paratore was at the church for most of Tuesday speaking with Hartman and other congregation members. Paratore was seen walking into the church with a forensic kit to dust for fingerprints.
