A statue depicting the Holy Family was stolen from outside a parish in San Antonio, Texas last week, and parishioners are praying for its safe return.
The concrete statue depicting Joseph, Mary, and Jesus was missing from outside St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church as of the morning of Feb. 17. The statue weighs over 300 pounds, and was likely taken by a team of multiple people.
Father Jimmy Drennan, the church’s pastor, told KSAT news that the statue was given to the church four decades ago by parishioners Jack and Theresa Fohn, who have since died.
Drennan told the news station that the absence of the statue is a tragedy for everyone.
